This dynamic sculpture illustrates the 3D distribution of CcmA proteins on the cell wall surfaces of four H. pylori mutants (with each mutant type shown in a different color under natural light). When black light is introduced, the CcmA protein distribution on each cell becomes visible and begins to glow. Each cell shape is taken from a real cell in the lab, along with its corresponding protein distribution.
