Arginine / ARG / R (EnzDes coloring)

Arginine (ARG or R) is a hydrophilic amino acid. Its shape on Foldit is unique.

Because Arginine's sidechain can be manipulated in so many different ways, it is often a good choice if you want to manually adjust a sidechain and then wiggle to gain points. Adjusting an arginine can change things quite radically.

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