RNA Bases

large image

Large ribosomal RNA is shown with individual bases depicted using solvent excluded molecular surfaces. Bases A, C, G, U are colored red, yellow, green, and blue. The surfaces were made with the Chimera multiscale tool in combination with the nucleic acid blobs plug-in. The image was raytraced using POVray.

Some alternate images showing bases with a single color, edge high-lighting, and bases as spheres. These images are not raytraced.
