Description: Fold a kinesin protein into an electron density map! We are giving you a monomer unit of the crystal structure 6IGN, which represents the coiled-coil stalk portion of a kinesin protein. Kinesins are motor proteins that transport cargo within the cell, by "walking" along the cellular cytoskeleton. This particular crystal structure of has a poor R-free value, meaning that some of the x-ray diffraction data is poorly explained by the crystallographer's structure. We are curious whether Foldit players can build a better structure into the electron density map!

Nice catch!

Sorry about that, here is the correct sequence (updated in the description as well):
