fully incompatible

A ligand may be fully incompatible with receptor, and fail to bind with either of the two sections.



Examples of Intervals Used

To represent an incompatible binding, we used the same interval to represent the receptors, but this time a “2nd” between the receptor notes represents the ligand. This note sounds dissonant with each of the two receptor notes separately, producing a minor 2nd and a tritone:
