A 3D model of synaptic architecture. ”We used an integrative approach, combining quantitative immunoblotting and mass spectrometry to determine protein numbers; electron microscopy to measure organelle numbers, sizes, and positions; and super-resolution fluorescence microscopy to localize the proteins. Using these data, we generated a three-dimensional model of an “average” synapse, displaying 300,000 proteins in atomic detail.” Via.

The Multifaceted Role of the Intestinal Microbiota in Colon Cancer | CELL Volume 54, Issue 2, p309–320, 24 April 2014
Review journal figure illustration I did for immunology :) published in CELL | Molecular Cell. I used Adobe Illustrator.

“Figure 2
Role of Dysbiosis and Immune Dysfunctions in Colon Carcinogenesis
(A) Dysbiosis, as a result of inflammasome deficiencies, could promote tumorigenesis. Inflammasome-derived IL-18 is necessary for tissue repair, protection against tumors, and the maintenance of the microbial ecology equilibrium. In turn, this phenotype associated with the lack of IL-18 could be exacerbated by a dysbiotic microbiota that could lead to chronic inflammation, increased IL-6 signaling, and tumorigenesis. In intestinal epithelial cells, IL-6 activates STAT3 signaling, protecting normal and premalignant cells from apoptosis.
(B) Dysbiosis and immune dysfunctions may allow increased bacterial translocation due to altered barrier function. Microorganism-associated molecular patterns (MAMPs) are detected by Toll-like receptors (TLRs) present in epithelial cells, macrophages, and myofibroblasts, leading to the activation of different pathways that promote cancer development. Epiregulin (EREG) and amphiregulin (AREG) are epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) ligands and therefore induce proliferation through MAPK/ERK pathway activation. Th17 cytokines mark the early stages of CRC by induction of STAT3.”

A different take on the typical plant cell diagram. I decided to emphasize the vast quatities of organelles inside just one cell, as opposed to most diagrams that show and label 1-2 of each organelle.

Illustration shows a multivalent ion bridge between polymer brushes. Single ions are seen in between the two separate polymer surfaces forced out by the larger ions. The background image shows the polymer brushes not in contact and in the presence of multivalent ions when brought together the polymer brushes tangle up with the multivalent ions forcing the single valent ions out of the polymer brush area. When the two polymer brushes are pulled apart the multivalent ions stay attached to the polymer brushes forming a multivalent ionic bridge. Ryan Allen, Institute of Molecular Engineering, U of Chicago.
