Figure 8

(a) Averaged MSD-Δt profile of the sub-trajectories captured in the –ALV zone of the first mode-set. The green line shows the overall MSD-Δt profile obtained from the original experimental replicates (Fig. 2c). The red line shows the theoretical MSD-Δt profile of the averaged MSD-Δt profile. (b) Averaged MSD-10Δt profile of the sub-trajectories captured in the –ALV zone of the second mode-set. The green line shows the overall MSD-10Δt profile obtained from the original experimental replicates. The blue line shows the theoretical MSD-10Δt profile of the averaged MSD-10Δt profile. Insets in a,b show examples of single-molecule sub-trajectories obtained from the –ALV zone of the first mode-set and the –ALV zone of the second mode-set, respectively. (c) MSD-Δt profile of the sub-trajectory shown in the inset of a. The red line shows the theoretical MSD-Δt profile. (d) MSD-Δt profile of the sub-trajectory shown in the inset of b. The blue line shows the theoretical MSD-Δt profile. The green shaded area in a,c,d highlights part of the MSD profiles whose time scale shows sub-diffusive behaviour. The yellow shaded area in c,d highlight part of the MSD profile whose time scale shows linear diffusive behaviour. This part of the profile shows either confined-like (c) or directed-like motion (d) compared with the theoretical profile.
