  • Hydrophobic effects, often conflated with hydrophobic forces, are implicated as major determinants in biological association and self‐assembly processes. Protein–protein interactions involved in signaling pathways in living systems are a prime example where hydrophobic effects have profound implications. In the context of protein–protein interactions, a priori knowledge of relevant binding interfaces (i.e., clusters of residues involved directly with binding interactions) is difficult. In the… CONTINUE READING
