a shape-shifting protein inside a cell

And I, love, am a shape-shifting protein — Sylvia Koph

I’ve studied shape-shifting proteins. They’re like pathological liars: anything they say or do, they believe, and that’s one of the reasons they’re so convincing, because they have no connection with the truth. It’s a dead issue. It’s like they’re color-blind to the truth. So anything that comes out of their mouths is their reality — Jane Velez-Kopjes

A shape-shifting protein is absolutely the toughest individual to deal with as a biologist. Because you can’t take anything they say or do at face value. And you can’t, you know, fill in their personality. You don’t know what’s real and what’s not — Dale Kopjes
