It is shown that the consistent consideration of the dependence of the diffusion coefficient on the field variables leads to a substantial difference of the values obtained for the substance flow and the entropy production in biological systems from the values obtained in the framework of standard approach with a constant diffusion coefficient.</p>}, number={8}, journal={Ukrainian Journal of Physics}, author={Gavryushenko, D.A. and Cherevko, K.V. and Bulavin, L.A.}, year={2021}, month={Sep.}, pages={714} }
