We extend the approach used to treat quasi-elastic inclusive electron-
nucleus scattering to the deep inelastic region. We provide a general
approach to describe lepton scattering from an off-shell nucleon, and
calculate the ratio of inclusive deep inelastic scattering cross sections
to the deuteron for nuclear matter and helium (EMC-effect). We find
that the consistent inclusion of the binding effects, in particular the
ones arising from the short-range nucleon-nucleon interaction, allows to
describe the data in the region of a > 0.15 where binding fully accounts
for the deviation of the cross section ratios from one.
