ANIMATION

Histone Methyl Transferases

Share this animation:

DNA in the nuclear environment is tightly packed in structures known as nucleosomes, which consist of DNA wound around histone protein cores. These complexes are important for the regulation of gene expression. Histone methyl transferases, or HMTs, modify histone proteins in order to increase or decrease the accessibility of certain genes. Some cancers may be caused by the overexpression or overactivity of HMTs, which results in the altered expression of genes responsible for cell growth and division.

XVIVO was asked to create an extremely complex but biochemically and biologically accurate animation that depicted the role of neuropeptides in brain plasticity. The final product was astounding — far beyond our expectations. This animation is now being used to educate breast cancer survivors on how cognitive processes are restored after chemotherapy. I would highly recommend XVIVO to others seeking similar products.
