A new model for 3D printing of serum album is available for download. The PDB structure 1e7i has in different sites. When creating the model, 7 molecules of stearic acid were removed, and hollow tunnels were modeled at the ligand interaction sites. These tunnels can accommodate insertable small parts that will represent the small molecules.

A related lesson plan on Carrying Cargo: Exploring non-covalent interactions between proteins and small molecules in blood transport is also available.

PDB-101's curated collection of files for 3D printing models also includes alpha-amylase, ferritin, GFP, and hemoglobin. Each 3D model file highlights a special feature of the molecule and its function. Suggested modeling additions, such as making heme molecules, can help tell a molecular story.

An overview is provided to start to create models for any PDB structure.

Please share any printed models with the team at info@rcsb.org, Facebook, or Twitter.
