Description: This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This protein is championed as the holy grail of neuroengineering. It functions to absorb light of a certain wavelength, and in response, it opens up a chloride channel. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can compare results to see how useful the recent additions to the game have been. Players will NOT be able to load in any previous solutions for these puzzles. For players with fewer than 150 global points.
