Description: We designed a helix to contact our substrate, but the helix needs back up to stay in place. The goal of this puzzle is to design a loop and mutate residues to create a more stable configuration, making a more active catalyst (ie create a Helix-Loop-Helix).

why ?

I cannot mutate segment insert on one end of the helix and I cannot delete segment ?

That is correct

We do not want you to change Alanine 54 or Glycine 55, however you are free to move the backbone there in order to make the helix move into a better position.

You cannot delete any residues, but you may add 0-5 residues anywhere between residues 44-54.
