Figure S2. Cell response distribution during decreasing-concentration trajectories. Cell response distribution for decreasing-concentration trajectories for lux01 (left) and lux02 (right) strains in the stochastic model. Cells are initially induced at for 2 hours. The concentration of exogenous autoinducer is then hourly decreased in order to simulate the experiments (see ). The cell distribution reveals the variety of cell trajectories in comparison to the deterministic population average solution (green line). The cells jump to the high state for a wide range of times and autoinducer concentrations. Note also that fluctuations leads to a stabilization of the low state with respect to the deterministic solution.
