This article names a protein that might help recovery from strokes. Could someone at Rosetta@home check if there has been enough work to determine the 3D structure of this protein?

This still needs tests to determine if it also works in humans.
Looks unlikely to help recover memories lost in strokes, but may recover the ability to form those memories.
