This contribution contains the commentaries of the three authors about two papers in this issue of TCA that present alternative views of the role of conformational changes in the specificity of enzyme DNA polymerase β. Concepts such as dynamical effects, the induced fit model or the importance of sampling in modeling of enzymatic reactions are briefly revised within the context of the debate established in the two previous papers.
