Visualization: Animation of electrostatic field lines

The visualization of field lines of the membrane-inserted BLT2 GPCR is implemented as WebGL-page using SpiderGL. There is an animation at my Youtube channel, a video that can be downloaded and a web-browser capable page at This visualization is supplementary material to the article Electrostatically-driven fast association and perdeuteration allow transferred cross-relaxation detection for G protein-coupled receptor ligands with equilibrium dissociation constants in the high-to-low nanomolar range by Catoire et al., Journal of Biomolecular NMR 2011.

Such molecular visualization applications of SpiderGL are described in more detail in M. Callieri et al., Visualization methods for molecular studies on the web platform, The Web3D 2010 Conference, 22-24 July 2010, Los Angeles, California
