Intrinsically disordered protein regions form condensates and mediate interactions with factors that regulate gene activity. Patil et al.1 decode how such regions within the chromatin remodeler cBAF choreograph selfcondensation and non-self interactions with transcriptional regulators, potentially impacting disease.
