Looking at biology today, I can see a number of paradigms that seem ripe for toppling, but that will probably evoke a lot of resistance when challenged. Here are a few: The idea that a number of highly expressed proteins are 'natively unfolded' or 'intrinsically disordered' in the cell. When isolated, often by a boiling step, synuclein behaves as a random coil until incubated with lipids, at which point it acquires a fair amount of helical structure.
But, really, how likely is it that it isn't at least partially folded in vivo? Cells have elaborate machinery to fold proteins that have trouble folding, and equally elaborate machinery to degrade those that don't fold. I have grave doubts.
That some portions of many proteins are disordered I am sure of, but that an abundant cellular protein should be unfolded most of the time strains credulity.
Part of the problem, I suspect, is that the term 'natively unfolded' is ambiguous. If it means unfolded in the cell, as I said, I'm dubious. If it means that it would be unfolded unless it came into contact with lipids, well, I can accept that, but isn't that the case with any integral membrane protein, for example, yet no one would ever call them 'intrinsically disordered'.
But heaven help anyone who challenges the idea that synuclein is unfolded most of the time. This paradigm has completely taken over the Parkinson's research community, and it will die hard. The notion that prokaryotic cells are much less organized than eukaryotic cells.
This one may actually be on the way out, I'm glad to say, but all the biology and biochemistry textbooks I'm aware of still imply it, if they don't say so directly. I suspect many scientists who work on eukaryotic systems still hold to it, if only subconsciously. The more we learn about prokaryotes, though, the more highly organized and complex their interiors seem to be.
The view of bacteria as bags of enzymes and nucleic acids while mammalian cells are models of organizational complexity and sophistication is probably about as much a description of reality as the ancient notion that the earth was the back of a giant turtle.
Bacteria may even turn out to be more sophisticated, because they have had make do with a smaller cell volume and fewer genes. In genome biology, the idea that all projects aimed at gathering massive amounts of data are equally worthwhile. Most scientists probably wouldn't subscribe to this, at least not publicly, but unfortunately, many science administrators do.
The Essence of Truth
Data-mining has become so linked with genomics that it consumes most of the funding, even when, as in the case of projects like structural genomics and genome-wide association studies, the results have proven to be worth far less than their originators' hype proclaimed they would be.
I don't mind trying such things out to see if they might be useful, but we seem utterly unable to pull the plug on them, or even phase them out gradually, when it becomes clear that they are not. The human genome sequencing project was a great achievement, and has already repaid its cost many times over in knowledge and in the spawning of other great science. Neither of the projects I just mentioned have done so, and I think it's a pretty safe bet that they never will.
We need a balance in the types of science we support and value, but balance is something that seems in short supply these days. The belief that to model a system is to understand it.
The Republic by Plato
Systems biology, which started out as a nice modern version of physiology, has almost been hijacked by this paradigm.Like this presentation?
