(See cell adhesion for the similarly-named series of revisiting puzzles based on puzzle 136.)
The protein in this puzzle is known as the ILK-PINCH complex. ILK is integrin-linked kinase. PINCH is "Particularly interesting new cysteine-histidine rich protein". Together, ILK and PINCH influence both how cell stick together ("cell adhesion") and how they migrate.
The puzzle protein has 70 segments with the sequence:
