Difficulty: Beginner
Description: This small unsolved Arabidopsis protein only has 59 residues and negatively controls the biosynthesis of starch in plants and regulates leaf and seed composition. We are giving you 5 starts for this puzzle. Resetting the puzzle will cycle through these 5 Zhang server predictions. They are also in the Alignment Tool so you can use partial threading as well as an extended chain. For players with fewer than 150 global points.

_____________________________

If you want to fold proteins, know that there are many ways to play and this variety is the main value of Foldit :
- try all puzzles not only "Beginners" ones,
- fold first the ones you like the most,
- try it by yourself to understand what works and what doesn't,
- ask for tips in global chat when you think you don't understand something.

Make sure you have followed these tutorials:
- Lonely Sheets,
- Lock and Lower,
- Rebuild,
- Structure and Rebuild,
- Control over Clashing,
and especially:
- Alignin' Sequences

before starting this puzzle.

the 5 starts

The 5 starts are the results of a very successful program to find protein structure(Zhang server of Zhang lab)with some modifications.
You can access the 5 starts by resetting the puzzle or by the alignment tools.
Try the 5 starts or the ones you find more likely.
You can also mix some starts with partial threading : http://foldit.wikia.com/wiki/The_Alignment_Tool
