A thermodynamic theory is presented for the description of local, site-specific linkage effects in biological macromolecules. The theory is developed from a basic isomorphism involving the intensive quantities of a thermodynamic system at equilibrium. Local linkage effects can be cast within the same mathematical framework as the one used in the statistical… CONTINUE READING
