Molecular motion in a series of cavities dominated by time dependent bottlenecks is studied as a model for molecular pathways in biomolecules. The problem is formulated by coupled rate and Langevin equations and is shown to be equivalent to n-dimensional reaction-diffusion equation where n is the number of cavities visited by the molecules. Results are presented for two cavities and a comparison is made between steady state and non steady state results.
