Reassociation Kinetics

  • Thengiz Beridze


Reassociation of separate DNA strands is a second-order reaction described by the formula
$$ \left( {{{\operatorname{C} }_{0}} - C} \right)/\operatorname{C} = {{\operatorname{k} }_{2}}{{C}_{0}}t, $$
where C0 and C are the concentrations of the reacting chains in solution at zero time and time t, respectively. After half of the reassociation reaction has passed, i. e., C0/C = 2, then k2 = 1/C0t1/2. Thus, the second-order reaction constant is inversely proportional to the C0t1/2 value.
