The structure of the protein sortilin (in approx. 10 million times magnification). 
Sortilin is a propeller structure with a central tunnel, where other proteins (called ligands) can be recognized specifically. A propeller structure consists of a number of similar leaves (folded chain of atoms). Sortilin has ten leaves, here shown alternately in green and blue. On the tunnel wall one of sortilin's many ligands - neurotensin (red) - can be seen.
