The Model

Photograph of model created using the ZCorp 3D printer.  Yellow unit is the sigma factor responsible for promoter recognition.  Blue is catabolite activator protein, or CAP, that is activated in absence of glucose (which induces production of cAMP) and is responsible for recruiting RNA polymerase to the promoter.
