Description

Scientists have had difficulty solving the structure of this bacterial enzyme, which participates in the synthesis of certain antimicrobial compounds. The full protein is too large to model in Foldit, so we'll approach it in two separate puzzles; in this puzzle we'll focus on the N-terminal half of the protein. The starting solution is based on the structure of a homologous protein. See if you can find a solution that better fits the density!

This is a ligand puzzle, segment 141 has structure type "M".

I guess it's the stand-in for the rest of protein…?

Opened this puzzle anew in another client. Guess what, not a ligand at 141. Tested puzzle in previous client, still reporting 141 as a ligand. YMMV
