Table 1 The main model parameters and their recommended values based on this study

From: Use of transcriptomic data for extending a model of the AppA/PpsR system in Rhodobacter sphaeroides

Model Parameters Biological Meaning Recommended Values
α Compares the rate of re-oxidation of PpsR with that of AppA 6
β Compares the rate of reduction of PpsR with that of AppA 500
γ Ratio of the concentration of AppA and PpsR in a single cell 2.1
PpsRtotal Total concentration of PpsR ≈100 nM
KO Compares the rate of reduction of AppA with its rate of oxidation ≈ 6.7–12.7 μM
I Blue Light Irradiance 0.001
