Eukaryotic cells rely on a surveillance mechanism, the “Spindle Assembly Checkpoint” SAC M in order to ensure accurate chromosome segregation by preventing anaphase initiation until all chromosomes are correctly attached to the mitotic spindle. In different organisms, a mitotic checkpoint...
The ascendancy concept aims at quantitatively describing the growth and development of an ecosystem as whole. Growth is an increase in the total system throughflow, while development is taken to be a rise in the average mutual information inherent in the network flow structure. As an ecosystem...
A time-series microarray experiment is useful to study the changes in the expression of a large number of genes over time. Many methods for clustering genes using gene expression profiles have been suggested, but it is not easy to interpret the biological significance of the results or utilize...
Escherichia coli expresses type-I fimbriae; these are protrusions from the outer cell wall and have been identified as a virulence factor. They are also expressed by commensal strains of E. coli although (at any one time) only by a small proportion of the population. The orthodox interpretation...
Constraint-based approaches recently brought new insight into our understanding of metabolism. By making very simple assumptions such as that the system is at steady-state and some reactions are irreversible, and without requiring kinetic parameters, general properties of the system can be...
Our understanding of the evolution of the insulin signaling pathway (ISP) is still incomplete. One intriguing unanswered question is the explanation of the emergence of the glucostatic role of insulin in mammals. To find out whether this is due to the development of new sets of signaling...
The author proposes a kinetic model describing the interplay of messenger ribonucleic acid (mRNA), protein, produced via translation of this RNA, and nonprotein coding RNA (ncRNA). The model includes association of mRNA and ncRNA and regulation of the ncRNA production by protein. In the case of...
Homeostatic plasticity plays a critical role in the stability of neuronal activities. Here, with high-density hippocampal networks cultured on multi-electrode arrays (MEAs), the transformation of spontaneous neuronal firing patterns induced by 1 μM tetrodotoxin was clarified. Once tetrodotoxin...
