Abstract: Effect of bound nucleon internal structure change on nuclear structure functions is investigated based on local quark-hadron duality. The bound nucleon structure functions calculated for charged-lepton and (anti)neutrino scattering are all enhanced in symmetric nuclear matter at large Bjorken-x (x≳0.85) relative to those in a free nucleon. This implies that a part of the enhancement observed in the nuclear structure function F2 (in the resonance region) at large Bjorken-x (the EMC effect) is due to the effect of the bound nucleon internal structure change. However, the x dependence for the charged-lepton and (anti)neutrino scattering is different. The former (latter) is enhanced (quenched) in the region 0.8≲x≲0.9 (0.7≲x≲0.85) due to the difference of the contribution from axial vector form factor. Because of these differences charge symmetry breaking in parton distributions will be enhanced in nuclei. © 2005 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
