Reducing the increase of k through increase of ϕ. The figure shows increase of crRNA as A) pre-crRNA processing rate (k) is increased 1000 fold relative to the uninduced value, while CRISPR transcription rate (ϕ) is kept unchanged, B) k is increased 100 fold, while ϕ is increased twofold, C) both k and ϕ are increased 10 fold. The figure shows that a moderate increase in ϕ allows to substantially reduce the increase in k, while still achieving the same increase in crRNA amount.
