Equilibrium patterns resulting from the compression-mediated feedback loop. a, b Increasing the diffusion does not change the number of morphogen/curvature patches (a shows 10 times more diffusion compared to b). c In contrast, changing the mechanical properties of the system e.g. by quartering the tissue thickness effects the final number of morphogen patches
