Influence of the cell-cell communication rate ε and the decay rate of extracellular factor δ
on gene expressions. Protein number of Ap and Bp
at steady state for different communitysizes are plotted as a function of ε (A, B) and δ
(C, D). These plots are with gene copy numbers a = 1, b = 1, but qualitatively similar plots can be obtained with different gene copy numbers.
