DXP Synthase 6OUV-6OUW
3D Print of DXP Synthase in both its "Open" and "Closed" states. Protein dataset color-coded to denote active loops and binding motifs while highlighting three active site Histidine residues by their heteroatom color. The base for 3D prints includes a QR Code link to a 3D animated molecular visualization of DXP Synthase changing conformation from its 'Open' to 'Closed' states.
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.
CRISPR-Cas13a Bound to Guide RNA and Target RNA
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
M Tuberculosis Toxin-antitoxin Complex
Tuberculosis is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide, killing 10 million people around the world in 2017. Researchers at EMBL in Hamburg recently discovered that the Tuberculosis bacteria has a special toxin system with a surprising function. Once the system activated, all bacterial cells die and stop the disease.
