Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor, 3UON

3D Print Muscarinic Acetylcholine Receptor

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.

GLP-1 Comparative Analysis Kit

These are 3D prints of GLP-1 designed to in order to conduct a comparative analysis of GLP-1 and its analogs. The set includes the natural hormone, an animal analog, and synthetic drug. In addition, the GLP-1 Comparative Analysis Kit visualizes GLP-1 as both a circulating hormone and when bound to its receptor.
