The Analogy Continues to Hold Up

The articles in this special issue of Molecular BioSystems focus on this fascinating area of multi-protein complex chemistry, biochemistry and molecular biology. They reveal that the Alberts paradigm of thinking of these complexes as highly interactive, tightly regulated biochemical machines has held up well over the years and guided many of the important studies that have elucidated their mechanism of action.
