From: Kinetic asymmetry allows macromolecular catalysts to drive an information ratchet

Fig. 5

Catalysis-driven information ratchet can undergo non-equilibrium adaptation. Kinetic mechanism for transitions between the states of the molecule, where the rate constants for the catalytic reactions are shown explicitly. The direct transition between states pb and db is blocked—both forward and backward rate constants are very small—but the equilibrium constant must nonetheless reflect the relative energies of the two states
