Admiring the Cellular Landscape

“Created for Cell Signaling Technology, Inc. and inspired by the stunning art of David Goodsell, this 3D rendering of a eukaryotic cell is modeled in Molecular Maya using X-ray, nuclear magnetic resonance, and cryo-electron microscopy datasets for all of its molecular actors. It is an attempt to recapitulate the myriad pathways involved in signal transduction, protein synthesis, endocytosis, vesicular transport, cell-cell adhesion, apoptosis, and other processes. Although dilute in its concentration relative to a real cell, this rendering is also an attempt to visualize the great complexity and beauty of the cell’s molecular choreography.”
