Description: We are giving you this currently unsolved short protein as an extended chain. It has only 48 residues and we're posting it with no secondary structure predictions. For players with fewer than 150 global points.


If you are new to Foldit, here are detailed instructions to get you started: http://fold.it/portal/node/988864

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,

before starting this puzzle.

More background information about the protein?

Could scientists give us more background information such as what kind of organism the protein comes from and whether it is an oligomer? Like in the puzzle http://fold.it/portal/node/997914 . I think it will help when we predict its structure. I'm looking forward to your reply. Thanks a lot.
