Miscibility Gap in the Microbial Fitness Landscape
Braun, F N, Paulsen, S, Sear, RP and Warren, P B (2005) Miscibility Gap in the Microbial Fitness Landscape Physical Review Letters, 94 (17).
It is shown from molecular statistical considerations that a demixing instability exists in the moment space of a microbial protein expression profile. Although avoidance of demixing is generally requisite for biological function, a comparison with proteomic and genomic data suggests that many microbes lie close to the onset of this instability. Over evolutionary time scales, straying too close or into the immiscible domain may be associated with intracellular compartmentalization.
