From: Selection on metabolic pathway function in the presence of mutation-selection-drift balance leads to rate-limiting steps that are not evolutionarily stable

Fig. 3

In evaluating the influence of selection against the cost of protein expression on the evolutionary dynamics or parameters, the relationship of enzyme length to a enzyme concentration, b kcat, and c, and KM is shown when selection acts on expression cost in addition to flux and when it acts only on flux. Each point represents the average value from each replicate. In each panel, p-values correspond to the question of whether the slopes are different from each other, as assessed by mixed-effects interaction models
