What are generic consequences of coupling local enzymatic catalysis to molecular interactions between enzymes and substrates in chemically active biomolecular condensates? To address this question, we studied a minimal model of enzymes that show liquid-liquid phase separation and convert a single substrate species into product, which in turn is eventually restored to substrate. more

We explored the effect of advective bulk flow on the dynamics of membrane-bound protein patterns. We approach this question theoretically and experimentally by studying how Min protein patterns respond to bulk flow. more
