|Description:||In this puzzle, you can redesign a protein that was found to bind Abeta, a peptide associated with Alzheimer's disease. See the blog post about this for more information. The Abeta protein backbone is frozen in this puzzle. The binding protein consists of two chains, in which you can mutate all but several loop residues. Each chain has a separate RMSD condition, so only slight backbone movements will be tolerated. This puzzle also includes a Residue IE filter, which monitors that all PHY, TYR, and TRP residues are scoring well. Remember, you can use the Upload for Scientists button for up to 3 designs that you want us to look at, even if they are not the best-scoring solutions. Help us design a tighter-binding protein for Abeta!|
