Localization as a function of the binding rates to microtubules for the different motor proteins. Normalized concentration of V in the soma (green), axon (blue) and in the dendrites (red) as a function of time. Initially, the parameters satisfy σ
and cargo localizes to the axon due to the larger fraction of time spent in the kinesin binding state. At time t=0.5 the situation is reversed, and the localization of V shifts from axon to dendrites. The red regions in the inlays depicting the neuron shows the areas where V is present.
