Sugar (Glucose and sucrose) and the building blocks of sugar: water, hydrogen, and carbon dioxide
|Receptors - hot stuff Collection||
Molecular structures of selected receptors and some of the chemicals they bind like capsaicin and wasabi.
These structures are from aligned pairs of drug-sensitive and drug-resistant influenza proteins bound to different types of antiviral drugs. Comparing the pairs of structures shows how a single base mutation can allow a virus to become resistant to a drug.
|Immunology Basics Collection||
This set of immunology-related structures was created with an innovation grant from Shoreline Community College.
These structures are from different forms of hemoglobin. You can use these to compare hemoglobin with and without oxygen and the hemoglobin structures found in two types of sickle cell anemia (Hemoglobin S, and Hemoglobin C).
Structures of immune cascade complexes from bacteria. These include CRISPR complexes from different bacteria,with guide RNA, target DNA, and the Cas1, Cas2, Cas3, and Cas9 nucleases. This collection of structures can be used to show how bacteria recognize and destroy viral DNA. This system has become an important tool for genome engineering.
Chemical and molecular structures that accompany the Bio-ITEST Genetic Testing curriculum strand. Includes NEW structures!
Chemical and molecular structures that accompany the upcoming edition of Biotechnology: Science for the New Millennium, by Ellyn Daugherty.
A collection of biochemicals: starch, sugars, lipids, fatty acids, amino acids, DNA, tRNA, and protein.
|Beautiful Brain Collection||
The Beautiful Brain structure collection accompanies the traveling art exhibit: The Beautiful Brain: Drawings of Santiago Ramón y Cajal. This exhibit will be at the Weisman Art Museum, at the University of Minnesota, between Saturday, Jan 28, 2017 and Sunday, May 21, 2017.
