Unique Y-shape protein dimer of dimers tetramer in myocilin

A depiction of the newly discovered Y-shape (tripartite) at the center of myocilin, a protein commonly studied in hereditary glaucoma. It is a dimer of dimers and a tetramer of coiled coils and the first directly genetically produced Y shape to be discovered. Credit: Georgia Tech / Lieberman lab
