## Figure 11.
Theoretical hook curve (Eq. (16), thick curves), degradation hook (thin curves) and tongs plot (panel above; Eqs.
(20) and (21)) for different degradation levels log d. With increasing degradation the positive and negative amplitudes of the tongs plot
(the tongs opening Δγ_{3′/5′}) and the height of the degradation hook increase, accompanied by the shift of its
increasing branch towards the left which widens the curves (parameter β). The curves
are calculated with γ_{3′} = −γ_{5′} = 0.1, 0.3 and 0.5, respectively. The dotted curves in the part above are calculated
neglecting the saturation term in Eq. (21). The geometrical meaning of selected parameters
is indicated by arrows (see text)
