Biology using engineering tools: The negative feedback amplifier
|Title:||Biology using engineering tools: The negative feedback amplifier||Authors:||Birtwistle, Marc R.

Recent work from Sturm and colleaguespresents experimental evidence that biological negative feedback can serve the same function as it does for engineered systems: robustness to perturbations within the feedback loop. Such behavior has important implications for how to attack deregulated signaling networks containing negative feedback in diseases such as cancer.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Landes Bioscience||Copyright (published version):||2011 Landes Bioscience||Keywords:||negative feedback;signal transduction;quantitative modeling;mitogen activated protein kinase;spatiotemporal dynamics||DOI:||10.4161/cc.10.13.16245||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
