mRNA Decay in ceRNA hypothesis.

Time-course of mean mRNA number (first species) while transcription rate and interaction rate of the other species is being changed. Each curve is the average of 100 Gillespie simulations with the same initial conditions at steady state of unregulated system (). For both species parameters are the same as Figure 1 with with the exception of the parameter under study. A) Time course of mRNA as transcritption rate of the competing mRNA is changed. B) Time course of mRNA as interaction rate of the competing mRNA is changed.
