Although there seems to be a regular relation of protein change versus time via an exponential equation of the form ID =ekt, nevertheless, examination of the data indicates that such an exponential fit may be premature. Two other models, ID = kt + b and ID = btk + c represent better fits. Without better data none of the models appears convincing.
