  1. For the integration of Eqs. 6 and 7 we have fixed the following parameters ν = 0.5, q = 1, L S = 1, L M = 103, ε S = 0, ε M = 1 and n = 8 (number of PFK subunits). Simulations were done on a square grid of dimension N × N with N = 176. The dimensionless side length of the domain is given by l s = dx · N/δ1/2.
