Tyrosine / TYR / Y (EnzDes coloring)

Tyrosine (TYR or Y) is one of the more hydrophobic amino acids. Its shape in Foldit is similar to that of phenylalanine, but it has a "stick" on top.

In the Foldit Lua interface, the functions structure.GetAminoAcid and structure.SetAminoAcid use lowercase "y" for tyrosine.
