Etruscan chimera, 4th century BC Featured Print

Etruscan chimera, 4th century BC

Etruscan chimera. Bronze ornament depicting the Chimera, dating from around 400 BC during the Etruscan era in what is now Italy. The Chimera was a three-headed monster from Greek mythology. It had the head and body of a lion, with the head of a goat attached to the middle of its body, and a snake or dragon head at its rear. It was killed by the Greek hero Bellerophon. The creature is here shown with a fatal wound to the goat head, with blood on its neck. The snake head is seizing one of the horns of the goat head. This bronze object, which is 80 centimetres high, was originally a votive offering to the Etruscan god Tinia. It was discovered in Arezzo in 1553, and became a symbol of Medici power. It is now in the National Archaeological Museum, Florence, Italy

Heat shock protein 90 chaperone complex Featured Print

Heat shock protein 90 chaperone complex

Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) chaperone complex, molecular model. Hsp90 is a molecular chaperone and a member of the heat shock protein (HSP) family. HSPs are a group of proteins whose levels increase when cells are exposed to raised temperatures or other stress. Hsp90 is one of the most abundant proteins in cells where it is essential for the creation, maintenance, and destruction of proteins. Under normal functioning it is critical to maintaining the health of cells, whereas its dysregulation may contribute to carcinogenesis. It is therefore being researched as a possible target for anti-cancer drugs

Earthquake movements, artwork Featured Print

Earthquake movements, artwork

Earthquake movements, block artworks. At top is an unstressed block of the Earth's crust, with three layers shown and the future fault line shown as a dotted blue line. At centre, the slow build-up of stress due to plate tectonics has distorted the crust (white arrows) with the energy along the fault line signified by the red colour of the dotted line. An earthquake occurs when this energy is released (bottom), with the land either side moving (arrows), leaving a new unstressed fault line (blue dotted line) where the process repeats. Here the tectonic forces act parallel to the fault line, producing strike-slip earthquakes
