Summary of "Tinkering with Binding Polynomials in Isothermal Titration Calorimetry."

Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) has become the preferred experimental technique for characterizing intermolecular interactions between biological molecules. Among the several advantages, the use of natural non-labeled molecules and the determination of the complete thermodynamic profile for the interaction in solution remain as the primary features that have promoted ITC to the forefront of experimental biophysics. The experimental design in ITC may range from studying a simple direct binary macromolecule-ligand interaction to studying the homotropic or heterotropic cooperative effect between ligands when interacting with a given macromolecule. The theory of the binding polynomial has proven to be an appropriate unifying framework for handling the complexities that can be encountered when studying macromolecule-ligand interactions, though it has been deemed troublesome. The goal of this chapter is to provide a quite simple and widely available set of training experiments aimed at mastering the formalism of the binding polynomial applied to isothermal titration calorimetry.
