2160: KLHDC2 ligand design: Round 9

|Expired:||06/22/2022 - 23:00|
|Description:||Design a small molecule which can bind to KLHDC2! We don't want you to modify the protein, but instead use the small molecule design tools to build new small molecules which fit into the KLHDC2 binding pocket.
Note: To get the most out of the small molecule design tools, we recommend changing you view settings to the Small Molecule Design Preset.
THINK SMALL. Like the previous round, we're still looking to use your designs as inspiration for similar already-purchasable molecules. To give you more flexibility in this round, we've removed most of the waters and the corresponding HBond objective. Concentrate on changing up the molecule close to the carboxylate. In particular, rings near the carboxylate are likely to have promise. See the blog post and the previous puzzles for more background information, and pay attention to the various objectives.
This is a project in collaboration with Boehringer Ingelheim & Oxford University. Boehringer Ingelheim & Oxford have committed to help evaluate and test the molecules which Foldit players have designed. The structures of all compounds created as part of the collaboration puzzles as well as any experimental results from testing them will be made publicly available. All participants and game sponsors of current and future small molecule design games commit to complying with the Foldit Terms of Service including those pertaining to intellectual property.
