In this study, four models of IP3R (Othmer and Tang, 1993; Dawson et al., 2003; Fraiman and Dawson, 2004; Doi et al., 2005) were selected among many to examine their behavior and compare them with experimental data available in literature. The provided MATLAB script (run_IP3R_P0.m) will run the simulations and plot Figure 2A in the paper.
