Regardless of details of the nonlinearities, and additions and other 'bells and whistles' that may be added, three key properties distinguish this model from others. First, there is spontaneous morphogen activation into two distinct regions, and activation from zero morphogen level is not dependent on the presence of nonlinearities 11 . Nonlinearities are invariably present in any model, but they are not here the source of the basic instability. Two lengths, determined by the parameters of the model, dictate the size of these two regions.
