In a toy model of a cell, protein X is produced according to a translation rate coefficient and eliminated according to a degradation rate coefficient. The protein copy number at which the rates for these processes balance is called the steady-state level, and the time it takes for a cell initially containing zero copies of protein X to accumulate half the steady-state level is called the “rise time.” Surprisingly, the "rise time" depends on the degradation rate coefficient only. The classic textbook presentation of this topic is found in Alon, An Introduction to Systems Biology: Design Principles of Biological Circuits, Boca Raton: Chapman & Hall/CRC, 2007 (p. 18-22).
