An explanation is offered for the large difference in values of mirror transitions from state to the ground state, based on the difference in binding energy of the states. The binding energy determines the degree of coupling of the positive parity nucleon to the deformed core, which in turn affects the value. The experimental asymmetry can be satisfied with a small change of the wave function.
