|Description:||Design a D2 symmetric protein tetramer, with 4 identical chains of 90 residues each! Unlike the cyclical C4 symmetry that we are used to, the proteins in this puzzle will come together as a "dimer of dimers" with D2 symmetry. This puzzle has no H-Bond Network Objective, but there is "Core Limit: Complex" objective meant to regulate the size of the interface between symmetric chains. An interface that is too large, with too many orange hydrophobics, can prevent the individual subunits from folding properly; on the other hand, an interface that is too small does not provide enough interactions for assembly The "Core Limit: Complex" objective will incur penalties if there are too many, or too few buried residues in the total assembly. This puzzle uses the Buried Unsats Objective, with a large penalty for buried polar atoms that can't make H-bonds. See the puzzle comments for more Objective details.|
