For brevity the amino acids in the newly discovered protein are alphanumerically coded as follows.

alanine – 0
arginine – 1
asparagine – 2
aspartic acid – 3
cysteine – 4
glutamine – 5
glutamic acid – 6
glycine – 7
histidine – 8
isoleucine – 9
leucine – A
lysine – B
methionine – C
phenylalanine – D
proline – E
serine – F

The newly discovered protein is a total of 32 monomers in the following sequence:


Its function is not known in its entirety but so far has been directly connected with causing stomach ulcers in entertainment industry executives.

    Given the number of random typos in the world, and the amount of time that people waste on the internet, it was inevitable that this simple 32 AA sequence would evolve.

    After all, life needs at least 400 proteins of 100AA length to exist and it atarted all by itself, before there were any intelligent beings with amino acid typing machines.

    Or, as Jeremy Bornstein put it so poetically…

    Zero and her Origin

    Zero, the number said to be discovered
    Nine times by ancient magicians, was
    Found again by a mysterious order of
    Nine modern alchemists, who built
    One machine after another, until finally
    One exploded with fascinating results.
    No fire emerged from its
    Twin engines, but instead
    Nine small automata crawled out,
    Denying the proposition that energy,
    Seven millenia or more in the accumulation,
    For most purposes, remains
    Ever constant, throughout the
    Three ages of man’s civilization.

    Five hundred years after the death of Cesare
    Borgia, whose image infected those of the
    Divine Lamb (so called), still she who
    Ate of the pomegranate seeds
    For her indiscretion, must ever wend her
    Solitary path amongst the
    Five true worlds, stopping only for
    Sex and occasional rending of garments.
    Constant travel drains her.
    Five worlds is too many for one lifetime, yet the
    Sixth can never claim her.

    Three wise men write, of the sefirot,
    Five are false, and four are lies.
    Tiferet alone among them holds the world’s truth.
    Eight lifetimes of study,
    Eight generations of blind encoding,
    Cannot release the final answer:
    Zero defined by itself; no further emblems exist.

    — Jeremy Bornstein
