ILLUSTRATION

Ion Transport Proteins

Share this animation:

In response to extracellular hypotonicity, KCC3 cotransporter proteins are activated on the surface of red blood cells, forcing an efflux of ions across the cellular membrane. In this image, KCC3 channels are depicted in blue and embedded within the cell membrane (red). This illustration was featured on the cover of Cell.

Both the quality of the final product and my experience working with XVIVO has reinforced my interest in a long-term collaboration with this team.
