Owner: kaurg
Start Date: 07/29/14

Puzzle: Abeta Binder Piecewise Design
Description:

This puzzle asks you to design 8 peptides around the abeta protein, which is involved in the formation of plaques around neurons in the brain in Alzheimer's disease. The plaques affect nerve signaling. Peptides that can bind to the abeta protein might help in prevention of the clumping of the protein and hence prevent the plaque formation in AD.
