Figure 10

The response of the mutual inhibition bistable switch module with highly diffusible elements. The spatial profile of Xis shown when Y is highly diffusible (solid line) and non-diffusible (dashed line) for (A,B) gradient signals and (C,D) localized signal inputs. When Y is highly diffusible, the switch-like behaviour observed in the non-diffusible case is no longer present. (E) This plot illustrates that the system can achieve a higher steady state value (with suitable initial conditions) without exhibiting spatial switching behaviour when the signal is in the bistable regime.
