Dynamic behaviour is starting to be explored throughout the genome, but analysis of spatial behaviours is still confined to individual proteins. The challenge is to reveal how cells integrate temporal and spatial information to determine specific biological functions. Key findings are the discovery of molecular signalling machines such as Ras nanoclusters, spatial activity gradients and flexible network circuitries that involve transcriptional feedback. They reveal design principles of spatiotemporal organization that are crucial for network function and cell fate decisions.||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Nature Publishing Group||Copyright (published version):||2010 Nature Publishing Group||Keywords:||signalling network components; spatiotemporal control; temporal signalling dynamics; Ras nanoclusters; cell fate decisions||DOI:||10.1038/nrm2901||Language:||en||Status of Item:||Peer reviewed|
