A two region axially-distributed model with flow and a facilitating two-sided transporter (T1-T2) for one solute.
This is a two region axially-distributed model with one solute, flow, a passive transporter representing exchange through interendothelial clefts and a facilitating two-sided transporter (T1-T2) representing exchange across a membrane separating the two regions. The units are phsiological, that is, "per gram of tissue", facilitating use of the model to represent an entire organ.
Note that the equations for the transporter moities include a diffusive term with a zero diffusion coefficient. This is necessary for correct sequencing of calculations so that all equations are included in the partial differential equation solver.

Transporter Mass Conservation
Substrate Mass Conservation
WARNING: Thermodynamic constraints are not included in the model. For a passive transporter, the transport rate constants should satisfy the following constraints:
The equations for this model may be viewed by running the JSim model applet and clicking on the Source tab at the bottom left of JSim's Run Time graphical user interface. The equations are written in JSim's Mathematical Modeling Language (MML). See the Introduction to MML and the MML Reference Manual.
