Effect of Biophysical Parameters on time-course of Receptor capture. (a) Time-course of receptor capture by the scaffold for a range of binding radii (σ = {0.1, 0.2, 0.3,...,1} nm). Red plus, 0.1; Green times, 0.2; Blue stars, 0.3; Purple square, 0.4; Cyan filled square, 0.5; Red circles, 0.6; Yellow bullets, 0.7; Blue up triangles, 0.8; Orange filled triangles, 0.9; Green down triangles, 1. (b) Time of half saturation as a function of binding radius. (c) Time-course of receptor capture by the scaffold for a range of diffusion coefficients (D = {0.1, 0.2, 0.3,...,1} μm2/s). Red +, 0.1; Green ×, 0.2; Blue *, 0.3; Purple squares, 0.4; Cyan filled squares, 0.5; Red circles, 0.6; Yellow bullets, 0.7; Blue triangles, 0.8; Orange filled triangles, 0.9; Green down triangles, 1. (d) Time of half saturation as a function of diffusion coefficient. Parameters used found in Table 1.
