||"A Scatchard plot also was created by using data from a series of equilibrium dialysis experiments conducted under various concentrations of tritiated L-lysine (Fig. 4D).
The slope of the resulting line indicates that the 179 lysC RNA binds to L-lysine with an apparent KD of
~1µM, which is consistent with that observed by using
in-line probing. Furthermore, the x-intercept of the line
occurs near an r value of one, which demonstrates that
the RNA forms a 1:1 complex with its ligand."
