Several methods exist for the measurement of binding constants for macromolecular interactions between dissimilar reactants. These allow biological interactions with binding constants in the range 102 to 109 mol L−1 to be characterized quantitatively.
- equilibrium interactions;
- reaction thermodynamics;
- ligand–acceptor (receptor) interactions
