Insulin is a chemical messenger produced by the pancreas in response to food. Use this 3D printed Biologic Model of the Insulin Receptor Complex as a desktop reminder to take your medication before each meal. This model is generated from PDB IDs: 3Wi4 and 2MFR. It is color coded to denote the dimer configuration on the plasma membrane.
The crystal structure of the Ebola Virus Glycoprotein in its trimeric, prefusion conformation is derived from a human survivor of the 1995 Kikwit outbreak. In this 3D exploration of the Ebola Virus Glycoprotein, we will investigate different surface properties and binding sites through 3D printed models and animation.
Sugar attaches to hemoglobin (Hb) and changes the protein's shape, impairing its function. Learn more about the dangers of high blood sugar and the importance of knowing your HbA1c test scores using 3D reproductions of Glycated Hemoglobin (HbA1c).
Understanding the relationship of GLP-1 and a natural animal analog to their receptors provides important insights into a rational model for drug design of next-generation GLP-1 analogs. These 3D prints of GLP-1 designed to comparative GLP-1 and its receptor to analogs. The set includes the natural GLP-1 hormone, an natural analog, and synthetic drug.
Humanized antibody are used in cancer immunotherapy to target the programmed cell death receptor (PD-1). Without the PD-1 protective mechanism, the antibody allows the immune system to destroy cancer cells. Explore the 3D structure with our interactive 3D models.
CRISPR-Cas13a is a newly discovered member of the Genome editing system making waves in the biotech community. Explore this 3D printed protein model of CRISPR-Cas13a to examine how it uses RNA to target and edit DNA. Protein model created from PDB ID: 5XWP
Learn more about the dangers of high blood sugar and the importance the HbA1c blood test using 3D reproductions of Glycated Hemoglobin (HbA1c). Simulate protein glycation to patients using magnetized sugar molecules that attach to the surface of hemoglobin.
Researchers at EMBL in Hamburg recently discovered that the Tuberculosis bacteria has a special toxin-antitoxin system with a surprising function. Once the system activated, all bacterial cells die and stop the disease.
The active ingredient in psychoactive mushrooms, has provided the spiritual and cultural bedrock of many great civilizations. The Aztecs referred to teonanácatl, which translates as ‘divine mushroom’, and modern neuroscience has revealed how psilocybin interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain in order to produce a range of consciousness-altering effects.
Deadly to newborn babies, the Human Respiratory Syncytial Virus (HSV) is a major cause of lower respiratory tract infection. Dynamic structural changes in the Fusion F Glycoprotein reveal and hide binding sites, making targets of new therapies difficult to identify. Explore RSV Fusion F Glycoprotein-3RRR and learn more about its Postfusion 3D structure.
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.
A nucleosomeis 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.
Configure and 3D Print in a variety of materials and sizes a hand-held model of CRISPR Cpf1. This model of Cpf1 can be 3D printed in a variety of materials and sizes. Seen here, Cpf1 is colored blue, DNA colors yellow and green, and guide RNA colored Red. .
Antibody Drug Conjugate (ADCs) are monoclonal antibodies attached to biologically active drugs by chemical linkers. These cytotoxic killers are a new frontier in immunotherapy offering tissue targeting capabilities for superior immunological response. Explore the 3D structure of an Antibody Drug Conjugate to learn more about how it combats cancer.
ETH Zurich researchers make a major breakthrough in our understanding of the glycosylation process after crystallization of the Oligosaccharyltransferase (OST) Complex, the protein that attaches sugar chains. Biologic Models visualizes this dataset as a 3D Printed Protein Mode
