In this work we analytically derive the time-integral of a class of nonlinear reaction-diffusion systems commonly found in networks of biochemical reactions. This formula is inferred using the Laplacian Spectral Decomposition method, which approximates the solution of the Partial Differential Equations by a finite series capturing the most relevant dynamics. The time-integrals allow us to understand how signal transmission depends on initial and boundary conditions, spatial geometry and the turnover rates of some species.
