Method "[Researchers] simulated and measured experimentally the time courses of the reporter responses in cells switched from noninducing medium (raffinose) to galactose."
Comments From SI: “the unit of volume is 3.57?10^-14 liters (a typical cell volume for haploid yeast…). Similarly, “molec" appearing as a unit in the kinetic constants for the model represents molecules per unit volume as defined above… [researchers] used the conversion factor of 4.65?10^-8 millimolar/(molec/cell).” See note beneath table
