Thermodynamic molecular switch in macromolecular interactions

It is known that most living systems can live and operate optimally only at a sharply defined temperature, or over a limited temperature range, at best, which implies that many basic biochemical interactions exhibit a well-defined Gibbs free energy minimum as a function of temperature. The Gibbs free energy change, ΔGo (T), for biological systems shows a… (More)
