Cell Cycle Control by a Minimal Cdk Network
An aeroponic culture system for the study of root herbivory on Arabidopsis thaliana
(Biomed Central Ltd, 2011-03-10)
Background Plant defense against herbivory has been studied primarily in aerial tissues. However, complex defense mechanisms have evolved in all parts of the plant to combat herbivore attack and these mechanisms are likely ...
A Hybrid Model of Mammalian Cell Cycle Regulation
The timing of DNA synthesis, mitosis and cell division is regulated by a complex network of biochemical reactions that control the activities of a family of cyclin-dependent kinases. The temporal dynamics of this reaction ...
Network Topologies and Dynamics Leading to Endotoxin Tolerance and Priming in Innate Immune Cells
The innate immune system, acting as the first line of host defense, senses and adapts to foreign challenges through complex intracellular and intercellular signaling networks. Endotoxin tolerance and priming elicited by ...
Temporal Controls of the Asymmetric Cell Division Cycle in Caulobacter crescentus
The asymmetric cell division cycle of Caulobacter crescentus is orchestrated by an elaborate gene-protein regulatory network, centered on three major control proteins, DnaA, GcrA and CtrA. The regulatory network is cast ...
Potential Role of a Bistable Histidine Kinase Switch in the Asymmetric Division Cycle of Caulobacter crescentus
The free-living aquatic bacterium, Caulobacter crescentus, exhibits two different morphologies during its life cycle. The morphological change from swarmer cell to stalked cell is a result of changes of function of two ...
