"Flagella Base Model" and "Flagellin monomer"

Description: This is a teaching model of the proteins that make a bacterial flagella. All models are depicted in space-fill. The Flagellin monomer and the Flagella base can slot together to show protein quaternary structure and filamentous protein assembly.

Printable models are already uploaded to in the MacroMolecules shop under the names "Flagella Base Model" and "Flagellin monomer".

This model has been printed successfully using these parameters on Shapeways’ laser sintering printer in the following material: Processed Versatile Plastic (Strong & Flexible Plastic).

Model designer: Brandon Lasalle Authors: Brandon Lasalle and Rebecca Roston
