Description

Touted as the world's most accurate protein kit, Tangle Creator and Tangle Master Richard X Zawitz, partnered with the world's top protein expert; Professor Marcel Japers, to create a one of a kind science kit, allowing students, teachers, and science buffs to recreate the three main proteins:

  • Streptococcal Protein G
  • Ubiquitin
  • ω – Conotoxin MVIIA

The Tangle Proteins Building Set allows users to construct their own three-dimensional proteins at home or in the classroom. As a science project or a great way of fostering creativity, The Tangle Proteins Building Set is a tool for educators and students to understand the challenging structure of Amino Acids and DNA in a polypeptide chain.

The truth is that proteins are the building blocks of life. A large part of each one of us is made of protein, and proteins play many roles in our bodies, ranging from the protection provided by our skin, to the sending of signals to regulate our blood sugar. This kit is a one-of-a-kind tool for complete understanding of proteins, all you have to do is build them and the rest is history. Lessons included. Pieces are ~1 inch long and 1/8 inch wide.

Hard to assemble

This is a great way to show students how important the attractive forces are for creating a stable secondary and tertiary structure. It is VERY hard to assemble, (my hands hurt!) and I can't make the model work as is shown in the instruction manual. It seems the H-bonds are a little too stiff. Other than the difficulty with assembly, its a nice tool for demonstrating attractive forces between amino acids.
