BME 100L. Modeling Cellular and Molecular Systems Fall 2009 Homework 8 Chapter 4. Problems 17, 30, 31, 32 Due: 5pm, November 16 th 17. Let where SS = single strand, H = hairpin loop, and DS = double strand (a) At equilibrium, [SS] e is related to [H] e and the initial concentration of [SS] 0 , Fraction of hairpin loop f = [H]/([SS] + [H]). (b) Assume H 0 is independent of temperature. Then, you need to show that S 0 is also independent of temperature if w* = 0 and P = constant by using the equations given in the lecture notes on Nov. 9, 2009. (c) K 1 = [H] e /[SS] e and K 2 = [DS] e /[SS] e 2 . 30. Using the definitions of c and f to determine [S] and [D] as functions of c and f only. 31. (a) Similar to G 0 , neighbers) nearest ( H ) initiation ( H H 0 0 0 neighbers) nearest ( S ) initiation ( S S 0 0 0 S 0 can also be determined as ( H 0 - G 0 )/T if G 0 and H 0 are known. G 0 must be calculated at the same temperature T. If T = 25
