Do you want to see a drawing of your favorite protein?


Dear friends and readers of my blog, as I am always looking for new inputs for my protein art, I decided to post a call for protein structures. Are you working on a certain structure or did you just hear of a protein and you would like to see it as a funny drawing? Just ask me in the comments on this post and I will try to fulfill your orders!

Here is an example of a protein ordered by a reader of my blog (on livejournal). It’s the protein Runx1. I have produced two variants. In these drawings you see the protein from two different perspectives.

“The Tourist”
Runx1
Runx1

“The Hunter

Runx1 is a transcription factor. It means that this protein can bind and regulate certain regions of DNA. Runx1 plays a role in the production of blood cells. People with a defective variant of this protein can develop a certain type of leukemia.

    Like seeing images in a cloud…NEVER lose your imagination, which according to Einstein, is more important than just about anything!
