Equations (1) through (8) provide a general mathematical model of combined pulsatile and basal effector molecule secretion, distribution, association, dissociation, and metabolic removal. Independent and interactive dynamics of multiple effector molecules and multiple distinct acceptor/transport proteins can be modeled explicitly to test relevant hypotheses of ligand binding and clearance.
