Genetic Mutations and Disease

This interactive module explores how mutations arise in germline and somatic cells. It also shows how these mutations can lead to genetic conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and cancer.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.

BCR-ABL

This model shows the structure of the protein BCR-ABL, which causes a type of cancer called chronic myeloid leukemia.

Gleevec-Resistant BCR-ABL

This model shows a mutated form of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL that is resistant to the drug Gleevec.

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP)

This model shows the structure of ATP, a molecule that provides energy for cellular processes, including protein phosphorylation.

How The Body Uses Fat

This tutorial explores how fat is digested, transported, stored, and used for energy.

Molecular Structure of Fat

This tutorial describes the various forms of “fat” — from a tissue, to a cell type, to a class of molecules.

The p53 Gene and Cancer

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the p53 protein, how its activity is regulated in cells, and how mutant versions of p53 can lead to cancer.
