Tyrosine Y

Foldit's version of Tyrosine

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


Tyrosine / TYR / Y

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