LMB 365 – Day 20

The first research undertaken at the MRC Unit in Cambridge, that later was renamed the LMB, was the work to determine the structure of proteins. Here, on day 20 of #LMB365, is the model of the first protein whose structure was determined: myoglobin. Myoglobin is an oxygen storing protein found in muscles, in particular in ocean and diving mammals, such as whales. This model, on display in the LMB Atrium, was made for LMB scientist and Nobel Laureate, John Kendrew @NobelPrize
