Figure 4

Joint increase of k and ϕ . The figure shows how pre-crRNA (the first row) and crRNA (the second row) change as k is increased for three orders of magnitude (the saturation value - see Figure 2), while ϕ is increased for one order of magnitude. The initial conditions and pre-crRNA and crRNA decay rates (λu and λp) are the same as in Figure 2. The figure shows that saturation in crRNA amounts (due to increase of only k) can be relieved if ϕ is increased as well, which leads to a very large amount of generated crRNA.
