A: Sometimes how we perceive ourselves and how others perceive us can be very different.
Q: What does "affinity" mean in physics or chemistry or biology or whatever area or field it is you would think of when reading the following confusing sentence:
A: Essentially, I think it's saying that in order for organisms to respond to stimuli properly, molecules and the substances they bind to may need to initially have a small chance of properly binding to each other. This small chance of binding then makes sure that the place that they bind to each other at is flexible enough that changes to the shape of the combined substance and molecule can be properly observed and detected.

"Interfacial plasticity" is basically how flexible the space where two surfaces bind is, so how much it can change shape before they're no longer bound to each other.
A "ligand" is the combination of a molecule and a substance, and a "conformational change" is a change in the shape of a molecule, so "ligand-induced conformational changes" are changes to the shape of a molecule caused by the molecule binding to other substances.

And this is degree-level science if I'm honest, I'm also struggling to explain this because it's not something I've studied in detail before. The only reason I can understand it even a little bit is because I know what the individual words kind of mean from the little I learned at school, but I might be wrong with my explanation of this particular sentence because I never studied science to this level. And don't worry, it feels like a different language to me too!
