Computation and Chemistry Combine to Create World-First Auxetic Protein

Chemists at the University of California, San Diego (UCSD) designed a sheet of proteins (C98RhuA) that toggle between different states of porosity and density. The cells of the crystal lattice are hinged at the corners of the C98RhuA tetramer, allowing it to turn and open or close the pore. (Credit: Robert Alberstein et al.)
