Alexandra Pina Kingman, Anne-Kristin Stavrum, Ivan Viola, Helwig Hauser (Thormøhlensgate 55, 5020 Bergen Norway)This image is an excerpt from the animation entitled “Negative charge and poly(ADP)-ribosylation: a scientific animation.” The moecules where uploaded from the Protein Data Bank using the Embedded Python Molecular Viewer plug-in for Autodesk Maya (Johnson et al. 2001; Sanner et al. 1996). The scene was rendered using Maxon Cinema 4D and composited in Adobe Photoshop. Subsurface Scattering was chosen to give the molecules a translucent appearance. Two PARP-1 molecules are shown bound to damaged DNA (Coquelle and Glover 2012). This work has been carried out within the PhysioIllustration project (funded by NFR, project #218023).
