X-ray interpretation of Dog

medical illustration of This molecular illustration shows the components involved in the release of insulin from a pancreatic beta-cell during a period of elevated glucose-levels. The insulin molecules will go on to bind to insulin-receptors on other cells that allow glucose to enter and be used for energy.
Next medical illustration of This molecular illustration shows the steps involved in building the ‘membrane-attack complex’ (MAC) during an immune response against an invading bacterium. A transmembrane channel is formed when up to 16 C9 molecules are added, thus disrupting the outer membrane (the complete pore was halved for the sake of the illustration).
