Sequence-specific binding of proteins to DNA is essential for accessing genetic information. Here, we derive a simple equation for target-site recognition, which uncovers a previously unrecognized coupling between the macroscopic association and dissociation rates of the searching protein. Importantly, this relationship makes it possible to recover the relevant microscopic rates from experimentally determined macroscopic ones. This post contains kinetic data for the lac repressor and code to analyse and interpret the data in light of...
