Fig. 3

Sterol abundance in the PM and steady state sterol flux across the PM decrease non-linearly with increasing q2. Steady state sterol abundance in the PM (a ST, sum of Eq. 14a, 14b) and steady state sterol flux across the PM (b Eq. 16) as function of the passive sterol distribution between both PM leaflets (q2) for the indicated rate constants of intracellular sterol release (k3). Other parameters were v1 = 1 mol/s and k− 2 = 1 s− 1, respectively. See text for further explanations
