Citric Acid Cycle

This animation shows the reactions of the citric acid cycle, which splits off carbon atoms and generates energy-rich reduced forms of cofactor molecules. It is the first of three animations about cellular respiration.

Electron Transport Chain

This animation shows how the enzyme complexes of the electron transport chain harvest energy from cofactor molecules to pump protons across the mitochondrial membrane and establish a chemical gradient. It is the second of three animations about cellular respiration.

ATP Synthesis

This animation shows how the proton gradient across the mitochondrial membrane powers the ATP synthase enzyme to make ATP. It is the third of three animations about cellular respiration.

Photosynthesis

This multipart animation series explores the process of photosynthesis and the structures that carry it out.

Cystic Fibrosis Mechanism and Treatment

This animation shows how mutations in an ion channel protein lead to the genetic disease cystic fibrosis. The animation also discusses how research on this protein has been used to develop treatments for the disease.

Structure of Dengue Virus

This animation zooms into a 3D model of dengue virus, moving from the virus’s outer structures to its inner core.

The Fate of Fat

This animation shows how dietary fat gets digested, packaged, and sent to various tissues for storage or energy.

Triplet Code

This animation describes how many nucleotides encode a single amino acid, which is a key part of the genetic code.
