Figure 5: The effect of metabolic perturbations on the starch content. Simulating the starch content under certain metabolic perturbations: increased sucrose concentration in the tuber (SUC_cyt_T), increased transportation rate from the leaf cell to the tuber cell (Diff_coeff), and increased transportation rate of G6P transporter in the tuber (v55); the relevant parameters to the case of perturbations were increased 10-fold.
