Molecular gas properties of distant BCGs and cluster galaxies observed in CO. Left: evolution of the molecular gas-to-stellar mass ratio as a function of the redshift for cluster galaxies at 0.2 ≲ z ≲ 2 observed in CO. The solid green curve is the scaling relation found by Tacconi et al. (2018) for field galaxies in the MS and with log(M/M) = 11, which is the median stellar mass of all sources in the plot. The dashed green lines show the statistical 1σ uncertainties in the model. Right: molecular gas-to-stellar mass ratio versus the specific SFR for the cluster galaxies, both normalized to the corresponding MS values using the relations for the ratio and the SFR by Tacconi et al. (2018) and Speagle et al. (2014), respectively. The dot-dashed green lines show different depletion times, in units of the depletion time at the MS. In both panels the points show cluster galaxies with molecular gas observations. The adopted color code is reported at the top left of each panel. The KiDS BCGs from this work are reported as red circles. Additional distant BCGs from the literature are also highlighted.
