Abstract

Abstract Data available in the literature show that the numerical values of the apparent equilibrium constants, K st , of self-association of nucleotides and nucleobases differ by up to an order of magnitude, for the same compound. In addition to the known influence of the salts present in water solution it would also appear that the experimental technique used may influence the numerical values of K st . With regard to this last point, we report here a study of the self-association of 5′AMP using microcalorimetry. The thermodynamic parameter values obtained confirm their dependence on the experimental techniques utilized.
