Table 1 Cytosolic and nuclear compartment sizes of the HeLa cells [17]

From: Impact of explicit area scaling on kinetic models involving multiple compartments

  Original model Small cell Medium cell Large cell
Cell volume \([\upmu \hbox {m}^3]\) \(1.8*10^4\) \(2.2* 10^3\) \(3.7* 10^3\) \(5.2* 10^3\)
Nuclear cross section \([\upmu \hbox {m}^2]\) NA 155 200 245
Nuclear volume \([\upmu \hbox {m}^3]\) \(1.2*10^4\) \(1.45 * 10^3\) \(2.13 * 10^3\) \(2.88*10^3\)
Nuclear surface \([\upmu \hbox {m}^2]\) 2533.88 619.28 800.23 979.79
  1. Nuclear volume and surface area were calculated based on the nuclear cross-section
