    Stability-mediated epistasis constrains the evolution of an influenza protein

    Lizhi Ian Gong et al.
    Some of the mutations that occur during influenza evolution can only be tolerated in conjunction with other mutations that increase the stability of a viral protein.

    Emergence and evolution of an interaction between intrinsically disordered proteins

    Greta Hultqvist et al.
    The resurrection of ancient ancestral intrinsically disordered proteins reveals the evolution of a protein-protein interaction in molecular detail.

    Molecular function limits divergent protein evolution on planetary timescales

    Mariam M Konaté et al.
    Orthologous proteins that continuously maintain the same molecular function do not usually diverge beyond a certain level of sequence and structural similarity.

    Evolution of an ancient protein function involved in organized multicellularity in animals

    Douglas P Anderson et al.
    Experimentally reconstructing the evolution of the molecular complex that animals use to orient the mitotic spindle establishes a simple genetic and physical mechanism for the emergence of a function essential for multicellularity.

    Evolution of an intricate J-protein network driving protein disaggregation in eukaryotes

    Nadinath B Nillegoda et al.
    The emergence of complementary electrostatic potentials after the prokaryotic-to-eukaryotic split drives physical and functional cooperation between canonical class A and class B J-proteins to boost protein disaggregation.

    Functional trade-offs and environmental variation shaped ancient trajectories in the evolution of dim-light vision

    Gianni M Castiglione, Belinda SW Chang
    The evolution of the light-sensitive visual pigment rhodopsin involved functional tradeoffs that may have sacrificed rod photosensitivity for active-state protein stability to mitigate phototoxicity in tetrapods, but not in fishes.

    Large-scale determination of previously unsolved protein structures using evolutionary information

    Sergey Ovchinnikov et al.
    A new method of protein structure prediction that incorporates residue–residue co-evolution information into the Rosetta structure prediction program was used to develop models for 58 large protein families that had no previous structural information.
