In section II.3 we developed a theory which enables one to calculate the effects of excluded volume on the equilibrium distribution of cell membrane proteins. In various situations (like photobleaching recovery experiments) the kinetics plays a role. It is the aim of the present chapter to describe a theory which enables one to analyze the effects of excluded volume on the kinetics of proteins which diffuse laterally in the cell membrane, and to apply this theory to some experiments of current interest. We shall also study the case of diffusion in a three dimensional space.
