Analysis of the 1D minimal model with robust set of parameters. The figure showing changes in the auxin distribution pattern at N = 50 in response to variations in: a. α value; b.-c. diffusion rate (D) value; d. K0 value; e. q1 value; f. q2 value; g. q3 value; h. Kd value, where other parameters were defined as in [Additional file 2: IV]. Auxin distribution pattern calculated with the robust set of parameter values and matching experimental data is marked by asterisk. Unstable fluctuations of auxin concentration in time are marked by dashed lines. The distributions having additional auxin maxima at the root base are blue colored. e. The 1 D minimal model analysis with the robust set of parameters in the STEP+ package [37]. The stationary solutions for ith cells are obtained by the method of continuation with respect to parameter α. The number of crossings (102) of the selected component with a vertical line at α = 1 corresponds to the total number of stationary solutions (stable and unstable), with the same set of parameters. In all plots, the y axis specifies auxin concentration in concentration units (cu).
