Acrobatic duo in the cells

(University of Basel) Just like an acrobatic duo, some proteins lend each other stability. Researchers at the Biozentrum of the University of Basel have discovered that the protein 'Trigger factor' recognizes a partner by unstable, flexible domains, to then together form a stable protein duo. The study has been published in the current issue of Nature Communications.
