This is a model of DNA Helicase breaking apart the hydrogen bonds of a DNA strand for replication. It includes a full DNA stand and the DNA Helicase Enzyme.
Both Proteins are Scientifically accurate and Using this model can help created realistic and high definition renderings to convey research or information to a 3rd party for informative or promotional means.
The Scene is also shaded with procedural materials to allow infinite resolution no matter how close up you zoom into the model.
Helicases are a class of enzymes vital to all living organisms. They are motor proteins that move directionally along a nucleic acid phosphodiester backbone, separating two annealed nucleic acid strands
Many cellular processes involve the separation of nucleic acid strands. Helicases are often utilized to separate strands of a DNA double helix or a self-annealed RNA molecule using the energy from ATP hydrolysis, a process characterized by the breaking of hydrogen bonds between annealed nucleotide bases. They move incrementally along one nucleic acid strand of the duplex with a directionality and processivity specific to each particular enzyme.
