Description: We are giving you this unsolved vascular endothelial growth factor protein as a freestyle puzzle to start. We will post another round for this protein later, giving you server predictions as starting models, but we'd like you to just work with this extended chain for now (as homology-based methods have failed to solve this protein). More info in the puzzle comments, including a blogpost about this unsolved protein.

More info:

The secondary structure predictions for this puzzle haven't come back from the SAM server yet, so these are the ones that were used for the starting chain:

The higher the number, the higher the confidence of the secondary structure prediction above it.

In this puzzle, the "High Wiggle Power" option has been disabled.

Please read the new blogpost about this protein.

Secondary structure predictions from SAM:

The sequence logo predicted by the SAM server finally finished:

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.
