Methionine / MET / M (EnzDes coloring)

Methionine (MET or M) is a hydrophobic amino acid. Its shape in Foldit is unique. It's shorter than Lysine.

Methionine occurs as the first amino acid in Foldit puzzles quite frequently. It has a strong tendency to form part of a helix, as part of the "MALEK" group of amino acids.

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