Abstract:

So there! By this rash assertion I mean that in the biological world almost every macromolecular constituent is likely to function in more than just one way, i.e., is pleiotropic. One and the same protein may be enzymatic, regulatory, and structural; one nucleic acid, informational, structural, and regulatory; and so on. Clarence Jeffery called this “moonlighting.”
