Fig. 8

The influence of molecular movement on the co-spread of REP and NSR. The case shown in black is the same as the one of black line in Fig. 5. At step 3 × 106, the moving rate of molecules is changed, deriving the cases shown in other colors. a The changed rate is PMV, which determines the movements of all molecules. b The changed moving rate is of raw materials (i.e., nucleotide precursors). c The changed moving rate is of ribozymes (i.e., REP and NSR). d The changed moving rate is of parasites (i.e., other RNAs with two end-CSTags)
