Abstract

We consider a simple mathematical model of distribution of morphogens (signaling molecules responsible for the differentiation of cells and the creation of tissue patterns) similar to the model proposed by Lander, Nie and Wan in 2002.The model consists of a system of two equations: a PDE of parabolic type modeling the distribution of free morphogens with a dynamic boundary condition and an ODE describing the evolution of bound receptors. Three biological processes are taken into account: diffusion, degradation and reversible binding. We prove existence and uniqueness of solutions and its asymptotic behavior.
