Receptors

Softimage ICE Tree

An ICE tree that describes the behaviour of receptors landing on a cell membrane and triggering a signal. One of my first attempts at using strands. This ICE tree was used for the animations showcased in the MPN Connect iPhone / iPad app.

Behaviour Description:

  1. A particle chooses and seeks a receptor.
  2. The particle does not pass through the cell surface on its way to the receptor.
  3. The particle lands on the recptor.
  4. The receptor grabs the particle.
  5. The receptor with the particle signals the nucleus.
