Table 1 Copy number and association rate for subsystems when we use the DNA size ratio method

From: System size reduction in stochastic simulations of the facilitated diffusion mechanism

DNA size   lacI    k λ assoc s 1

  1. The full system consists of (i) 1000, (ii) 100 and (iii) 10 lacI molecules. When computing k λ assoc , we assumed that, for the full system, the time spent on the DNA is: i) 〈f10〉≈0.923, (ii) 〈f100〉≈0.922 and (iii) 〈f1000〉≈0.921.
