Today I received and analyzed the three models created yesterday, smad_ttn_gfp_u, smad_ttn_gfp_d, smad_ttn_gfp_d2. Below are the first two models, where the kinetic constant for reaction 10 (gfp -->) was raised and lowered by an order of magnitude (from 3.21E-05 1/s). The base is shown for comparison:

As can be seen, there is a small difference when the GFP was increased, but no noticeable difference when GFP decomposition was decreased. The last model set GFP decomposition to zero in order to check whether a decrease would ever significantly affect the graph:

As can be seen the elimination of GFP production doesn't have an effect. This makes sense since source literature says GFP decomposition is minor when compared to the dilution as a result of cell division.
