## Figure 3.
Plots of crowding effects (equation 2) and TGF-β_{1 }activation function u_{T }(equation 4). A: Crowding effects (k_{mem }(t) in equation 2) contributed by myocytes, endothelial cells, and vascular smooth muscle
cells. B: Crowding effects contributed by macrophages, fibroblasts, and collagen in
the scar tissue. C: Total crowding effects imposed by the environment. D: TGF-β_{1 }activation function, u_{T }according to small scar size. Activation peak time is at day 2 post-MI with amplitude
at 15 pg/μL/day.
