Description: This is our fourth electron density puzzle with real data. Like our previous puzzles, we were able to pinpoint which regions belong to a single copy, though the density itself is less clear. Try to fit the protein into the density to get the best score! Secondary Structure Predictions are posted in the puzzle comments.

Secondary structure predictions:

Here is the sequence logo predicted by the SAM server.

H = helix
E = sheet
C = loop (or coil)

The taller the letter at each position, the higher the probability of that specific secondary structure for that amino acid.

For example, the amino acid Leucine at residue 37 is highly predicted to be part of a sheet. However, the Valines at residues 6-7 & 97 have an equal probability of being anything.

Smoother and Cleaner Density Cloud possible?

I believe it is possible to improve this density cloud clarity:

1) The current density map seems to have been saved with a step of 2 (judging by the rough angles of the blobs) giving us a much rougher image to work with than with a step of 1.

2) Plus some dust cleaning (removing small blobs) would also greatly enhance our ability to navigate and distinguish the shape of the protein.

Please, could you re-submit the puzzle with a smoother/cleaner density cloud?

Thanks

Puzzle disappeared?

This puzzle seems to have disappeared from my list of available science puzzles. It is not supposed to have expired for several hours. Explanation?
