Hydrophobic Dewetting in protein ion channels and model nanopores

Hydrophobic dewetting forms a vapor barrier and closes BK Channel; how do mutations or drug-like molecules (de-)stabilize this delicate liquid-vapor interplay?

Physics-based modeling of Hsp70-substrate binding

Molecular chaperones like DnaK help fold misfolded proteins,
but how do they distinguish well-folded, misfolded, and disordered regions?
