Description: This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This pheromone protein is secreted by the protist E. raikovi to initiate conjugation, the exchange of genetic material between two cells. This protein contains ten cysteine residues that oxidize to form five disulfide bonds. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been.

Unplayable.

This puzzle is unplayable. Any pulling of the protein causes the game to crash.

Never mind...

...I am doing this puzzle the old-fashioned way: without using bands. It seems that the crashes only happen when bands are in place. They don't even need to be engaged to cause the crash.

I filed a feedback, with a debug file output attached.
