2.8 Angstrom resolution reconstruction of the Thermoplasma acidophilum 20S proteasome using cryo-electron microscopy.
Importing Cryo-electron microscopy (3DEM) data into Sketchfab
Once the model was imported into SF, lighting and background color were adjusted. The SF generated embed code was copied and pasted onto this page (see Fig. 1). Click the “Play” button to start the interactivity.
Cryo-electron microscopy (3DEM) is a field of structural biology that deals with the determination of 3D structures of macromolecular complexes and cells. This emerging field helps to bridges the gap between cell biology and crystallography/NMR.
EMDataBank is the unified global portal for the deposition and retrieval of 3DEM density maps, atomic models and associated metadata.
In order to test if this type of data would import into Sketchfab (SF), various structures were downloaded from the above site. After conversion into acceptable 3d formats, the models were uploaded to SF and embedded on the page above.
