New publication

Congratulations to Ben, whose paper “Ancestral protein reconstruction yields insights into adaptive evolution of binding specificity in solute-binding proteins” has been published in Cell Chemical Biology.

This paper gives a new structural and thermodynamic perspective on the evolution of binding specificity and shows the role of conformational plasticity and enthalpic interactions for promiscuous binding in an ancestral solute-binding protein.
