This is the ranasmurfin protein.  It has an unusual name and it’s function is unknown.  I chose to just render the backbone because I liked how it eliminated enough clutter to emphasize the symmetry of the protein.  It’s a blue protein found from the foam nests of a tropical frog.  (The fact that it’s blue may be part of the “smurf” root in the name but I’m not sure)
