Water Planet

23 Jun 2016

More evidence of the dominance of water on our planet - see https://archaeologynewsnetwork.blogspot.co.uk/2016/06/scientists-glimpse... .... and the missing words to that are 'without water'. A study in June's issue of PNAS provides evidence that proteins are folded by smaller water molecules. Protein molecules fall into particular shapes to enable biological reactions - but they can't fold themselves. Water molecules are able to do that for them - and the process has been observed (it would seem).
