In the course of trying to engineer proteins to have a particular function, unexpected behaviours sometimes arise. I will describe how following up on some odd behaviour in while trying to engineer photoactive yellow protein as a light-controlled switch, led to interesting, perhaps, general new insights into the behaviour of these remarkable moelcules.
