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.
ETH Zurich makes major breakthrough in diabetes research after crystallizing Oligosaccharyltransferase (OST) Complex, the sugar attaching protein.
Antibody Drug Conjugate
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.
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.
Psilocybin bound to Serotonin Receptor
Modern neuroscience reveals how psilocybin interacts with serotonin receptors in the brain in order to produce a range of consciousness-altering effects.
Glycated Hemoglobin HbA1c
Learn more about the dangers of high blood sugar and the HbA1c blood test by exploring this 3D Printed Protein Model of Glycated Hemoglobin (HbA1c).
GLP-1 Comparative Analysis
Use these 3D prints of GLP-1 to explain the incretin effect and compare GLP-1 to its analogs. The set includes the natural GLP-1 hormone, an natural animal analog, and synthetic drug.
Monoclonal IgG4 Antibody bound to PD1
This is a 3D print of a humanized monoclonal IgG4 antibody used in multiple types of cancer treatments. Models available in multiple materials and sizes.
Zika Virus Shell
The recent rapid spread of Zika virus and its autoimmune-neurological linkage to birth defects has generated worldwide concern. Use this is a 3D print of the Zika Virus Shell to explain targets for intervention of this dangerous virus.
Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor
Acetylcholione is a neurotransmitter involved with the autonomic nervous system and its receptor the target of a variety of drugs.
PIP4K II Alpha and Beta
Recently, Cornell University commissioned us to create 3D printed models of PIP4K II Alpha and Beta for the purpose of demonstrating PIP4K dimerization.
