Page 2 of 14 Name: 1.) ( 60 points total ) The protein below has four binding sites ( ? , ? , ? , ? ) for the ligand L (look familiar?). Assume that the association and dissociation constants are equal. L L + L + ? ? ? L ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? ? It has energies associated with each macrostate L, where L is the # of ligands: #L energy 0 8 ? 1 4 ? 2 2 ? 3 1 ? 4 0 1a.) (10 points) Plot an energy level diagram, including all microstates. Label values on the y axis in terms of the energy unit ? .
