Valine / VAL / V (EnzDes coloring)

Valine (VAL or V) is a hydrophobic amino acid. Its shape in Foldit is identical to that of threonine, and is also similar to asparagine and aspartate. The CPK or EnzDes coloring options (found in view options) can be used to help tell these amino acids apart.

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