Harmonin Label

Protein: Harmonin

Artist: Jason S. Lusk

Of all the myriad functions of proteins, among the most crucial to our existence is the ability of certain proteins working in tandem to allow us to preceive our world.    Harmonin is one link in a chain of structures that allow us to perceive the sounds around us, from a beautiful chord played on a guitar to the powerful roar of thunder.  This portrait is made from materials that would never have been formed without harmonin and other hearing proteins.
