3D Print of Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor

Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor, 3UON

Muscarinic acetylcholine receptors are G protein-coupled receptor complexes in the cell membranes of certain neurons and cells. They play several roles, including acting as the main end-receptor stimulated by acetylcholine released from postganglionic fibers in the parasympathetic nervous system. This 3D printed protein model of muscarinic acetylcholine receptor is visualized by its ribbon structure highlighting the protein’s transmembrane active sites. (more…)

3D Print of RsmE bound to the Shine-Dalgarno of mRNA

RsmE, CsrA, 2JPP, Biologic Models

This is a 3D print of RsmE bound to two strands of mRNA visualized as a ribbon bound to nucleotide sequences. The RsmE homodimer is colored blue and purple according to protein’s beta sheet and helices. In red and orange are the two RNA-binding sites. mRNA is colored shades of green according to nucleotide type.…

3D Print of Tresiba Insulin Hexamer

3D print of Tresiba Insulin Hexomer

This is a model of the pharmaceutical drug Tresiba, insulin degludec, in its stable macro-molecule hexamer form. Tresiba is a fascinating drug, engineered to create long, macromolecular filaments that get stored in fat. Attached to each hexamer are 6 hydrocarbon chains (blue-cyan sticks). They act like tails reaching out to a neighbor hexamer to bind.…

3D Print of Novolog Insulin Hexamer

3D Print of Novolog Insulin Hexomer

This is a model of the pharmaceutical drug Novolog, insulin aspart, in its stable macro-molecule hexamer form. It is colored by the protein’s bFactor, or atomic temperature. Chains A and C are stained yellow, and Chains B and D are stained dark orange-red. The core of the macromolecule shows the stable, cool binding region of each monomer, an…

3D Print of Porcine Trypsin

1S81, Porcine Trypsin

Trypsin is a protease enzyme from the digestive system. Trypsin hydrolyzes proteins adding water molecules to specific structures and cuts up other proteins into pieces. Trypsin is used in a variety of biotechnologies to break down proteins, commonly referred to as trypsinization. Protein Description “An understanding of the physiological and toxicological properties of borate and the utilization…
