The puzzle protein has been solved. It's a "hypothetical protein", identified from the DNA of Pyrobaculum aerophilum, one of the archaea, single-celled organisms which were once lumped in with bacteria, but are now classified as a separate domain. As the "pyro" in its name hints,Pyrobaculum aerophilum likes it hot, growing best at around the boiling point of water.
The function of this particular protein is unknown.
The puzzle protein has 101 segments with the sequence:
This sequence is found in these Protein Data Bank entries:
- 1RKI (chains A, B; offset 0)
The puzzle protein can have three disulfide bridges, identified in 1RKI a a 22-34, 24-54, and 80-83. Recent revisits to this puzzle have awarded a bonus of 250 for each bridge formed.
The recipe Bridge Wiggle v 1.2.1 - Brow42 accepts the bridge in this format:
22,34 24,54 80,83
This puzzle does not have any ligands.
This puzzle has a single chain.
