From: Interlinked nonlinear subnetworks underlie the formation of robust cellular patterns in Arabidopsis epidermis: a dynamic spatial model

Figure 3

The model renders cellular patterns similar to those observed in the leaf epidermis. The simulated cellular patterns for wild-type (wt) and mutant networks are consistent with the patterns reported in the literature. Black squares correspond to trichomes and white ones to pavement cells (non-hair cells). Captions under the matrixes indicate the simulated genotype that gave rise to each of them (++ stands for overexpression, while lower case italics indicate loss of function). The table shows that the network profiles typical of hair and non-hair cells are recovered by the meta-GRN model. These simulations were all performed in 20 × 20 matrices with parameter values D CPC = 0.05, D TRR = 0.05, D TTG = 0.03.
