Awesome design! I'm jealous.

Is it just me, or does the ED data make it look like this monomer is part of some kind of giant polymer barrel?

And by polymer I mean

And by polymer I mean oligomer.

Interestingly enough, this protein does crystallize such that four monomers arrange into a kind of beta-barrel. However, the protein is monomeric in solution.
