|The protein causing whooping cough was animated--- uncoiling,
opening calcium channels and going through the cell membrane to cause disease.
This was produced to support a feature NEW to academia at the time: animations
targeted at grant proposals in the basic sciences, the models of which were re-useable, modifications based on furthering research. This concept has caught
on in other areas as well, and digital media are now regularly submitted as appendices
to grants across the sciences.
The domains in the protein were merely shown in symbolic colors to reduce computing time; current animators have the luxury of processing more elaborate protein envelopes, as computing has evolved over 1000x since that time.
From an early QTVR of the Prostate and pelvis, the model is viewable from any attitude.
