Subcellular location of PKCalphaII-GFP (green) in Green Monkey COS-7 cells using laser scanning confocal microscopy two days after transfection. The actin cytoskeleton is stained with Texas Red-phalloidin and the endoplasmic reticulum (purple) identified with an antibody to calreticulin.

Web Based Tutorials

  • Beginners guide to molecular Biology
    Useful resource for GCSE and A-level biologists. Protein synthesis is explained in six stages. After the basics, you can find out more about the great variety of proteins and molecular engineering.
  • Chemical Carousel
    A-level and undergraduate chemists, biologists and biochemists will find it useful for revision and learning.
  • On line Macromolecular Museum
    Rotate and translate the structures and identify key features. A comprehensive interactive tutorial for each 3D animation is a real aid to understanding structures for amino acids and proteins. There are also links to other big molecule sites.
  • Interactive Biochemistry
    This relatively site uses interactive experiences (Java applets and Chemscape Chime) to explore advanced enzyme kinetics. Michalis-Menten and Lineweaver-Burt kinetics applets enable undergraduate level students to plot their own experimental data. Recent additions include VRML manipulation of a peptide and some protein structure tutorials. Also very useful are the alpha helices viewer and the amino acid titration behaviour section.
  • Genetic Learning Centre
    This is possibly one of the best genetics sites on the Net. The basics of chromosomes, DNA, inheritance and protein function are explored with the aid of online and hands-on activities. Pop-up windows explain new terminology. A genetic disorder section summarises how gene mutation can cause illnesses such as sickle-cell anaemia and links can be followed to more specialist sites. Thematic units provide the user with the opportunity to delve more deeply into a collection of activities and research.
  • Deciphering The Message of Life's Assembly.
    a paper which provides an overview of protein structure and function and the history of research in the area of protein science.
