All animation were modeled in blender 2.54 beta. Blender is a open source program for 3D animation.
The two videos cover the assembly of the ClpXP system and the degradation of the tagged protein. It is important to note that protein proportions a molecular structure are not entirely respected in the animation. Also the change of the phytochrome B conformation from the Pf state into the Pfr state is symbolized by a change of color. However, the hexametric structure of ClpX and the heptametrical structure of ClpP were schematically shown. Pictures x and y give a better understanding between the molecular structure and the schematic animation. Picture x describes the modeled system in detail. Picture x describes the protein in detail.
