Mechanism of Disease 3D Animation This 3D animation depicts the various mechanisms of viral infection when a person becomes infected by the human immunodeficiency virus.
Protein Description Antibody-drug conjugate or ADC are an important class of highly potent biopharmaceutical drugs designed as a targeted therapy for the treatment of people with cancer. Unlike chemotherapy, ADCs are intended to target and kill only the cancer cells and spare healthy cells. ADCs are complex molecules composed of an antibody linked to a biologically active […]
Protein Description Epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) exists on the cell surface and is activated by binding of its specific ligands, including epidermal growth factor and transforming growth factor α (TGFα) (note, a full list of the ligands able to activate EGFR and other members of the ErbB family is given in the ErbB article). […]
Protein Description “The RNA-guided DNA endonuclease CRISPR Cas9 cleaves double-stranded DNA targets with a protospacer adjacent motif (PAM) and complementarity to the guide RNA. Recently, we harnessed Staphylococcus aureus Cas9 (SaCas9), which is significantly smaller than Streptococcus pyogenes Cas9 (SpCas9), to facilitate efficient in vivo genome editing. Here, we report the crystal structures of SaCas9 […]
Protein Description Cpf1 is an RNA-guided endonuclease of a type V CRISPR-Cas system that has been recently harnessed for genome editing. Here, we report the crystal structure of Acidaminococcus sp. Cpf1 (AsCpf1) in complex with the guide RNA and its target DNA at 2.8 Å resolution. AsCpf1 adopts a bilobed architecture, with the RNA-DNA heteroduplex […]
Protein Description “Pembrolizumab (formerly MK-3475and lambrolizumab, trade name Keytruda) is a humanized antibodyused in cancer immunotherapy. It destroys a protective mechanism on cancer cells, and allows the immune system to destroy those cancer cells. It targets the programmed cell death 1(PD-1) receptor. The drug was initially used in treating metastatic melanoma.” https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pembrolizumab 3D Molecular Visualizations This is a theoretical model of Pembrolizumab bound to PD-1 […]
