Structure and Functional Sites in Human Caeruloplasmin

You will need the Chime plugin to see this page, regretably it is not yet available for Mac OSX, a problem which greatly increased the work needed to construct this MOTM site!

You will probably find it easier to view the Chime images alongside of the static ones presented in the 'non-chime' site. In particular the view used by Bielli and Calabrese for a discussion of the functions uses a different perspective from that presented by the initial Chime view. Also, you may find it easier to hide the ribbons, and use the mouse to display the wire frame model before venturing on your voyage of exploration!
