Question: for dna a plot of the change in absorbance versus...

Question details

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
