In moments of boredom or concern, seeing how beautiful the structures of nature are can reassure and inspire! I went back to my favourite molecules and selected some protein structures to bring some dynamism and creativity in our SHOP. Have a look at the NEW items with this protein!
This crystal structure belongs to the Beta-Lactoglobulin that is a protein we find in our cappuccino or mozzarella. Pretty-looking, right?
β-Lactoglobulin is the major whey protein of cow and sheep‘s milk (~3 g/l), and is also present in many other mammalian species; a notable exception being humans. no clear function has been identified for β-lactoglobulin, this despite its being the biggest part of the fractional composition of the globular proteins isolated from whey (read moreDOI: 10.1021/bi0362469 or Wikipedia)
