Improving Resolution by Cryo-EM: ├č-galactosidase

medical illustration of This illustration highlights 3 cryo-electron microscopy (cryo-EM) structures of a gated ion channel in the brain in 3 conformations (left - resting, middle - active, right - desensitized).

Ionotropic glutamate receptors (iGluRs) mediate intercellular signaling in the nervous system. Their pore domain crosses the neuron's cell membrane, and when activated, they allow ions to flow across the membrane.
Next medical illustration of Ebola in 3D juxtaposes a real cryo-electron tomographic image of an Ebola virus-like particle and 3D model of an Ebola virus. The structure of the spike was determined by cryo-electron tomography from the tomography images.
This illustration was created using Maxon Cinema4D, ePMV, and Adobe Photoshop.
