Isothermal titration calorimetry (ITC) is a powerful biophysical tool to characterize energetic profiles of biomacromolecular interactions without any alteration of the underlying chemical structures. In this protocol, we describe procedures for performing, analyzing, and interpreting ITC data obtained from a cooperative riboswitch-ligand interaction.
