6.2 Non-covalent bonding in site-specific binding

The affinity of a protein for DNA is determined in thermodynamic terms by the free energies of the individual components compared to the free energy of the DNA-protein complex. DNA binding proteins, which contain different binding motifs, demonstrate a wide range of thermodynamic strategies.

The affinity of a site-specific DNA binding protein for its specific DNA sequence is generally of the order of 104−107 times greater than its affinity for non-specific sequen

Introduction

This unit will allow you to extend your visual modelling skills through the use of the sign graph diagramming technique. You will explore the dynamic relationship between social, economic and ecological factors whose interdependencies will determine the complex dynamics of the future as it unfolds. Your final task will be to identify points of intervention within this complex system in order to "nudge" the situation towards a more favourable outcome.

General principles

In principle, online shopping is simple and involves the following stages:

  • You find a site that sells what you want (possibly using a search engine, but more frequently going to a site which you know (from personal experience, word of mouth or advertising) sells the desired goods.

  • Having found on the site, you then locate – by searching or browsing – the goods in its online catalogue.

19 Conclusion

In sections 15–18, we examined the components and processes of an ICT system that is used for an everyday activity: shopping. We started by looking at a system map of the 'checkout system' before exploring the processes involved at the checkout. We considered some examples of networks and discussed the processes involved in a networked supermarket ICT system. Finally, we looked briefly at another way in which ICT systems can be used for shopping: e-commerce.
