Rhodopsin

This is a model of a protein involved in vision. This model is based on 1GZM in the protein database, but the membrane position is from the Orientations of Proteins in Membranes database. The red plane is the extracellular side and the blue plane is the intracellular side the phospholipid bilayer. The model was rendered in PyMol with some plugins that allow us to export a vrml file. That file was printed with our ZCorp 406 color printer.
