Soccer Ball Protein
Clathrin is a protein that looks like a soccer ball. Its job is to form tiny vesicles that transport proteins and enzymes and other materials throughout the cell. These little transport bubbles are also responsible for getting things out of the cell (like neurotransmitters) and bringing things back in (like retrieving neurotransmitters). Our clathrin necklace celebrates the important role of vesicles and proper vesicle formation. Purchase it for yourself or for a friend. It also makes a great gift for biochemists, cell biologists, neurologists, starry-eyed PhD students.
