    Mechanism of Insulin Action

    Insulin is a small 51 residue hormone synthesized and secreted by ß cells in the pancreas. Insulin is central to lowering blood glucose and maintaining metabolic function. Diabetes Educators and healthcare providers use this set of 3D printed models to explain how insulin binds the insulin receptor, calls up Glucose Transporters to the plasma membrane so that Glucose molecules can then flow through to the inside the cell.

    A nucleosome is a basic unit of DNA, consisting of a segment of DNA wound in sequence around eight histone protein cores. This structure is often compared to thread wrapped around a spool. Explore the 3D structure of Nucleosome 3C1B to learn more about DNA coiling.

  • CRISPR-Cas9 Bound to Guide RNA and Target DNA

    This is a 3D print of CRISPR Ca9 is created in full-color sandstone. The model depicts CRISPR (purple) bound to its guide RNA (red) while editing its Target DNA (yellow and green). The subtle color variations in the CRISPR are associated with its bFactor, or atomic temperature. The darker the color, the less the protein moves with a cooler atomic temperature.
