SARS-CoV-2 Structural Proteins
The outbreak of a novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) represents a pandemic threat that has been declared a public health emergency of international concern. The structural proteins of the SARS-CoV-2 Virion are key targets for vaccines, therapeutic antibodies, and diagnostics. Biologic Model designed the 3D printed SARS-CoV-2 Virion Model to help scientists better visualize the structural assembly of viral proteins. This scientific model is being used to help facilitate the rapid development and evaluation of medical countermeasures to address the ongoing public health crisis.
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
Ebola Virus Ectodomain
In this 3D exploration of the Ebola Virus Glycoprotein, we will investigate different surface properties and binding sites through 3D printed models and animation.
RSV Fusion F Glycoprotein
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.
Protected: Human Cytomegalovirus HCMV
The Human Cytomegalovirus (HCMV) is the leading cause of viral birth defects. HCMV Pentamer Complex is the main target of a viral immune response, and considered a key target candidate for vaccine therapies.
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.
