Award-winning Illustration of Glutamatergic Synapse

Wiki Science Competition Logo

Molecular view of glutamatergic synapse by RCSB PDB's Maria Voigt was selected as a national finalist in the 2021 Wiki Science Competition in the United States.

This illustration highlights spherical pre-synaptic vesicles that carry the neurotransmitter glutamate, and the pre-synaptic and post-synaptic membranes are shown with proteins relevant for transmitting and modulating the neuronal signal.

The still image is part of PDB-101’s Opioid and Pain Signalling video.
