The Beauty Within

GlucokinaseMoleculeDelve into the mechanism of insulin, and you encounter the incredible beauty of protein molecules. They aren’t really these colors. The colors represent the different components of the molecules, but the fantastic shapes are real. It’s like your children took LSD and went crazy with your box of ribbons. The whole stuff of life is this fascinating dance of elaborate dancers, dancing through our bodies, performing all the intricate chemistry that keeps us alive. That’s a glucokinase molecule.
