The effects of macromolecular crowding upon macromolecular associations in solution, and upon binding of a macromolecular ligand to a surface site, ar ereviewed. It is demonstrated, by means of two examples, that crowding may lead to significant alterations of biochemical or biological recognition processes at the molecular level.
