Hidden conformations are key for catalytic efficiency

Today appeared in Angewandte Chemie a paper by Sílvia Osuna and co-workers where they used Markov state models to discover hidden conformations. Enzymes exist as an ensemble of conformational states, whose populations can be shifted by substrate binding, allosteric interactions, but also by introducing mutations to their sequence. Tuning the populations of the enzyme conformational
