MOTIVATION: We propose the 3rd order model equation of the Jeffreys type for concentrations of gap gene proteins in order to take into account particle inertia. Gap genes are responsible for formation of body segments in D.melanogaster embryo during its early development. Usually the expression of the genes is described by the model of protein transport based on conventional diffusion equation. However the model is known to govern the Brownian (non-inertial) motion of particles, hence, it is hardly applicable to the description of protein transport.
RESULTS: Analysis of the Jeffreys type equation results in the necessary condition for the problem to be well-posed. Application of the Jeffreys type equation with non-linear terms to description of the dynamics of gap gene network demonstrates better fitting to experimental data than the conventional model.
