This one is described as "hypothetical protein dimer encoded by the Yoag gene from Escherichia coli".
Escherichia coli is of course better known as E. coli, the bacterium most commonly tricked into making the other proteins found in the PDB.
A "hypothetical protein" has been identified from an organism's DNA, but it's structure and function is unknown.
A dimer consists of two identical copies of a protein. Only one of copy of the protein is present in the Foldit puzzle.
Although the PDB entry for this protein was released in 2004, the supporting article is still shown as "to be published".
The puzzle protein has 60 segments with the sequence:
This sequence is found in this Protein Data Bank entry:
- 1NEI (chains A, B; offset 0)
