(a): Quadrilateral surface meshes of the nerve (flattish top) and muscular (folds) cell membranes at a neuromuscular junction. The interior is also meshed into hexahedral elements. (b): the mesh in (a) after quality improvement using geometric flow. The closeups between (a) and (b) highlight the improvement in the shape of the quadrilaterals on the membrane surface.
(c) (d) (e) (f)
A Gaussian blurred volume map of an atomic resolution molecular model of mouse acetylcholinesterase (mAChE). The region near the active site of mAChE (narrow gorge) is highlighted by red box in all the figures. (a): output adaptive triangle mesh and a closeup of the mesh near the gorge. (b): the same mesh, in a closeup, after performing quality improvement. (c,d): cross section of the interior and exterior hexahedral mesh of the same 3D map of mAChE. Note the mesh adaptivity near the gorge. (e,f): triangulated wireframe and tetrahedral mesh of a tetrameric cluster of mAChE (mAChE4). The molecule predominantly occurs in such tetrameric forms, especially in the synaptic cleft of neuromuscular junctions.
