Figure 8

Endpoint analysis of 100 diffusion-only random walks and 100 diffusion plus dephosphorylation random walks. Black lines represent vectors calculated by the final random walk point for each simulation, compared to the distance covered by a retrogradely transported signaling endosome in the same amount of time (green lines). The blue line represents the averaged vector for 100 diffusion-only random walks, while the red line depicts the averaged vector for 100 diffusion plus dephosphorylation simulations.
