Dramatic Influence of Patchy Attractions on Short-Time Protein Diffusion under Crowded Conditions

Protein diffusion is pivotal for the functional properties of biological systems. Here we use quasielastic neutron scattering experiments combined with computer simulations to obtain quantitative information about the short-time diffusion of proteins in... (Read more)
