Design a symmetric protein trimer, with 3 identical chains that assemble together! This puzzle enables AlphaFold predictions for the monomer subunit of your design, so you can upload your solution for AlphaFold using the AlphaFold prediction tool. AlphaFold will predict the structure of your monomer subunit only (i.e. in the unbound state, in the absence of other symmetric copies). If you load this prediction, then Foldit will attempt to align the prediction with your solution. If you continue working off of the AlphaFold prediction, you may need to make adjustments at the interface where the monomer subunit interacts with symmetric copies.

This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This small peptide is part of a larger protein that helps to regulate cell division, and is very important in early embryonic development. The protein is modeled here as in a reduced environment, so no disulfide bonds are expected to form. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been.

Design a small molecule which can bind VHL! This is the first in a series of puzzles using the small molecule design tools to design small molecule binders to the von Hippel-Lindau E3 ubiquitin ligase. We don't want you to modify the protein, but instead we'd like you to build new small molecules which fit into the VHL pocket. See the new "Inside the Pocket" and "Fun with Fragments!" tutorials to learn how to use the small molecule design tools.

This sandbox puzzle features a binder design by nspc in Puzzle 2043: CD47 Binder Design. This design makes excellent hydrophobic contacts with the CD47 target and does a good job of satisfying buried polar atoms with H-bonds. For more, check out Foldit Lab Report #25 on YouTube! This sandbox puzzle is non-competitive and will not award any points.

Design a protein that can bind to the TGF-beta receptor! This puzzle enables AlphaFold predictions for your designed binder. Once you've designed a binder for the target, upload your solution for AlphaFold using the AlphaFold prediction tool. AlphaFold will predict the structure of your binder chain only (i.e. in the unbound state, in the absence of the target). If you load this prediction, then Foldit will attempt to align the prediction with your solution (i.e. in the bound state, making an interface with the target). If you continue working off of the AlphaFold prediction, you may need to make adjustments at the interface where the binder interacts with the target.

This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This protein, isolated from the hookworm A. caninum, is an extremely potent anticoagulant. This protein contains ten cysteine residues that oxidize to form five disulfide bonds. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been.

Design a symmetric protein trimer, with 3 identical chains of 60 residues each! This puzzle enables AlphaFold predictions for the monomer subunit of your design, so you can upload your solution for AlphaFold using the AlphaFold prediction tool. AlphaFold will predict the structure of your monomer subunit only (i.e. in the unbound state, in the absence of other symmetric copies). If you load this prediction, then Foldit will attempt to align the prediction with your solution. If you continue working off of the AlphaFold prediction, you may need to make adjustments at the interface where the monomer subunit interacts with symmetric copies.

This is a throwback puzzle to the early days of Foldit. This small domain is part of a larger protein that mediates interactions between other proteins in human development. This protein contains several cysteine residues, but we are modeling them in a reducing environment, so they should NOT form disulfide bonds. We are revisiting old Foldit puzzles so we can see how useful the recent additions to the game have been.

Design a symmetric protein trimer, with 3 identical chains of 80 residues each! This puzzle enables AlphaFold predictions for the monomer subunit of your design, so you can upload your solution for AlphaFold using the AlphaFold prediction tool. AlphaFold will predict the structure of your monomer subunit only (i.e. in the unbound state, in the absence of other symmetric copies).
