We're excited and proud to launch Thingiverse Apps. Learn More about what this means to you.
These are two molecular models of a lambda bacteriophage Cro protein and a region of DNA to which it binds. As long as this protein is bound to DNA, the phage will remain dormant. Stress triggers degradation of this protein and re-expression of the phage.
The narrow towers don't quite print right on my bot, your mileage may vary. I wish I'd made them every so slightly smaller so they fit better, or had some sort of sand-blasting polishing tool.

So what's this mean?
We're sure mrule would love to see what you've printed - take a photo and share it on Thingiverse as a Make.
To post a Make simply visit this Thing again and click I Made One to start uploading your photo. You can also download the Thingiverse Mobile app (available via Google Play and Apple App Store) to take a photo and upload your Make right from the app!
