In science:

If they challenge the deep physics, then we are concerned, but if they challenge only a particular more limited statement, then we would look to see why this situation does not fit that special statement, and what essential feature such a statement fails to capture about the deeper second law.

Our findings provide a general framework for understanding the physical factors determining protein abundances in living cells. We found that functional monomers evolved largely hydrophilic surfaces, which allowed their production level to increase with apparent fitness benefit and minimal cost due to PNF-PPI.
Protein abundances and interactions coevolve to promote functional complexes while suppressing non-specific binding
