Protein Data for p53

Filed under: Student posts @ 7:59 am

The p53 protein (cellular tumor antigen) is an alpha-beta protein. It is composed of 4 alpha helices and 4 beta pleated sheets. I plan on using the following materials for the construction of my protein: faux flowers (plastic flowers), pipe cleaners, rocks, and these foam sheets that I am going to cut into beta pleated sheets. I found all of these supplies at the Dollar Store!
