Speed of pattern appearance in reaction-diffusion models: implications in the pattern formation of limb bud mesenchyme cells.

Abstract

It has been postulated that fibroblast growth factor (FGF) treatment of cultured limb bud mesenchyme cells reinforces the lateral inhibitory effect, but the cells also show accelerated pattern appearance. In the present study, we analyze how a small change in a specific parameter affects the speed of pattern appearance in a Turing reaction-diffusion system… (More)
