Poster design for the Feinberg School of Medicine at Northwestern University, illustrating the role of Beclin 2 in the process of autophagy.
Beclin 2 & Autophagy illustrated
The “cowboy” illustrates Beclin 2 (containing an N-terminal domain, CCD (coiled-coil domain) and ECD (evolutionarily conserved domain)): riding the autophagy “horse”.
7-Transmembrane GPCR illustrated
the “cowboy” Beclin 2 is harnessing the 7-transmembrane GPCR “cow” by the N-terminal “arm” and the GASP1 “lasso”.
Cell Parts illustrated
The background mountain depicts plasma membrane, and cacti and rocks represent various intracellular organelles (including mitochondria, ER and Golgi) and cytosolic proteins.
