A Model of Cell Surface Receptor Aggregation Iron, David


In this talk I will construct and analyze a model of cell receptor aggregation. We study the impact of density dependent diffusion on aggregate formation in a one-dimensional domain. Critical values of receptor diffusion and receptor activation are found and compared with numerical simulations. In the case of receptor activation the analytical results agree very well with the numerical calculations. Finally, we consider our model in higher dimensional domains. In this case our analysis is primarily numerical.
