All molecular models shown are designed and output from our molecular modeling environment, PMV, and printed on a Z-Corp 510 3-D printer. See our Print Your Favorite Molecule services and meet your maker Jon Huntoon.

Model of the membrane associated complex of three proteins that initiate the process of blood coagulation. A piece of the cell's membrane is shown at the bottom, the three proteins are depicted by different color surfaces: Tissue Factor in white, Factor VIIa in pink, Factor X in blue.

Dr. Lisa Craig utilizes a model of the pilin fiber from a bacteria to understand how individual protein molecules assemble to form the fibers that bacteria use to attach to human cells.

A tube model of the porin protein, which forms pores in our cells to allow molecules to pass through. The model shows how the linear peptide chain folds into a large cylindrical barrel shape. The colors along the tube indicate the sequence of different amino acids that make up the protein. The thin white tubes between parts of the chain are the hydrogen bonds that form to stabilize the structure.

A model of the polio virus capsid. The spherical viral shell opens up to reveal the inside and outside surface. The colors depict the four different types of protein that assemble to form the shell, which has the symmetry of a soccer ball.

A hybrid model of a protein subunit of hemoglobin, the molecule that carries oxygen from the lungs to the rest of the body. The model shows the fold of the peptide chain as an amino acid colored tube imbedded in a clear plastic representation of the molecular surface.

Professor Ehud Keinan utilizes autofabricated models to explain some unusual ring structures that he has synthesized.

A model of the HIV protease, a target for AIDS therapy. Scientists at Scripps utilize these types of models to help design new drug candidates that may be robust against viral resistance.

A large model of the surface of a hormone receptor binding site. It was designed to be used with molecular models built from standard kits to assist scientists in finding trial compounds that fit well into the site.
