Reaction-diffusion models postulate that differences in signaling range are caused by differential diffusivity of inhibitor and activator. Other models suggest that differential clearance underlies different signaling ranges. To test these models, we measured the biophysical properties of the Nodal/Lefty activator/inhibitor system during zebrafish embryogenesis. Analysis of Nodal and Lefty gradients revealed that Nodals have a shorter range than Lefty proteins. Pulse-labeling analysis indicated that Nodals and Leftys have similar clearance kinetics, whereas fluorescence recovery assays revealed that Leftys have a higher effective diffusion coefficient than Nodals. These results indicate that differential diffusivity is the major determinant of the differences in Nodal/Lefty range and provide biophysical support for reaction-diffusion models of activator/inhibitor-mediated patterning.</dcterms:abstract> <dc:contributor>Ramanathan, Sharad</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Ramanathan, Sharad</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Schier, Alexander F.</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Lee, Joon S.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Robson, Drew</dc:contributor> <dc:creator>Jordan, Ben M.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Müller, Patrick</dc:contributor> <dc:date rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-12-21T09:47:58Z</dc:date> <dc:creator>Rogers, Katherine W.</dc:creator> <dc:contributor>Lee, Joon S.</dc:contributor> <void:sparqlEndpoint rdf:resource="http://localhost/fuseki/dspace/sparql"/> <dc:creator>Schier, Alexander F.</dc:creator> <dcterms:rights rdf:resource="https://rightsstatements.org/page/InC/1.0/"/> <dcterms:issued>2012-05-11</dcterms:issued> <dspace:isPartOfCollection rdf:resource="https://kops.uni-konstanz.de/rdf/resource/123456789/28"/> <dcterms:available rdf:datatype="http://www.w3.org/2001/XMLSchema#dateTime">2021-12-21T09:47:58Z</dcterms:available> <dc:creator>Müller, Patrick</dc:creator> <foaf:homepage rdf:resource="http://localhost:8080/jspui"/> <dcterms:title>Differential Diffusivity of Nodal and Lefty Underlies a Reaction-Diffusion Patterning System</dcterms:title> </rdf:Description> </rdf:RDF>
