Dissociation rates from single-molecule pulling experiments under large thermal fluctuations or large applied force.

Abstract

Theories that are used to extract energy-landscape information from single-molecule pulling experiments in biophysics are all invariably based on Kramers' theory of the thermally activated escape rate from a potential well. As is well known, this theory recovers the Arrhenius dependence of the rate on the barrier energy and crucially relies on the… (More)
