More than 40 years ago, Jacques Monod and co-workers developed the theory of allostery that explains how the activity of proteins can be efficiently regulated. The quaternary structure allows proteins to have symmetries that play a central role in allostery. Grueninger et al. prove that this symmetry can be manipulated by site-directed mutagenesis. Their experiments confirm some of the basic arguments made by Monod et al.
