Eukaryotic Cell Panorama
Goodsell, David S.
Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, v39 n2 p91-101 Mar-Apr 2011
Diverse biological data may be used to create illustrations of molecules in their cellular context. This report describes the scientific results that support an illustration of a eukaryotic cell, enlarged by one million times to show the distribution and arrangement of macromolecules. The panoramic cross section includes eight panels that extend from the nucleus to the cell surface, showing the process of protein synthesis and export. Results from biochemistry, electron microscopy, NMR spectroscopy and x-ray crystallography were used to create the image. (Contains 8 figures.)
