For DNA, a plot of the change in absorbance versus temperature would be ________, which indicates ________.
Variable in shape (hyperbolic, linear or sigmoidal); the dependence of the denaturing process on the sequence of the DNA
Linear; the breaking of bonds between the base pairs is an independent process
Hyperbolic; a simple equilibrium between the native conformation and denatured DNA
Sigmoidal; cooperativity where disruptions in the base stacking at one position destabilizes the stacking in neighboring base pairs
