Coaxing out the right answers...

I have been toiling away at what should be some simple assays which should, in theory, give some simple answers to basic questions about my favorite protein. 

Alas, the "simple" solutions are definitely not the right ones.  There is some crazy things going on, all of which are completely plausible, its just not as simple as my boss or I thought it would be.  I like the complications, the multiple variables, the intricate puzzle.  In a way, it just seems to ascribe even more awe to the well-oiled machine designed by nature to carry out several simple tasks in the cells.  Humbling, really.

The answers are all there, I just need to ask the right questions.
