Description: This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This protein is involved in the process of exocytosis, transporting proteins to the cell membrane or extracellular areas. The protein is modeled here in reduced form, so no disulfides are expected to form. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been and to provide newer players with puzzles that are still scientifically relevant.

Weird dialog when opening this ...

It says "Both weights file and score function name supplied.", then hangs with the foldit logo and "Loading". Is this expected?

I'm also on Mac.

Also, on the loading screen there's a text in the upper left "No Tool".

Thanks for the quick feedback! I think we've fixed the problem. At the Puzzle Menu screen, you may have to click Refresh List to make sure your Foldit client gets the fix.

Had the same pathology as NinjaGreg. Has successfully resolved on my Mac (Yosemite 10.10.5).
Thanks Bkoep.
