This article is a critical review of computational techniques used to model, analyse and simulate signalling networks. We propose a conceptual framework, and discuss the role of signalling networks in three major areas: signal transduction, cellular rhythms and cell-to-cell communication. In order to avoid an overly abstract and general discussion, we focus(More)
MOTIVATION The protein tyrosine kinase Src is involved in a multitude of biochemical pathways and cellular functions. A complex network of interactions with other kinases and phosphatases obscures its precise mode of operation. RESULTS We have constructed a semi-quantitative computational dynamic systems model of the activation of Src at mitosis based on(More)
Src family tyrosine kinases play a key role in many cellular signalling networks, but due to the high complexity of these networks their precise function remains elusive. Many factors involved in Src regulation, such as specific kinases and phosphatases, are still unknown. Mathematical models have been constructed to improve the understanding of the system(More)
The cell division cycle is a fundamental process of cell biology and a detailed understanding of its function, regulation and other underlying mechanisms is critical to many applications in biotechnology and medicine. Since a comprehensive analysis of the molecular mechanisms involved is too complex to be performed intuitively, mathematical and(More)
BACKGROUND Software tools that model and simulate the dynamics of biological processes and systems are becoming increasingly important. Some of these tools offer sophisticated graphical user interfaces (GUIs), which greatly enhance their acceptance by users. Such GUIs are based on symbolic or graphical notations used to describe, interact and communicate(More)
Variations in the depth of scratches in a transverse section of a premolar was studied. The scratches were produced by a Vickers diamond whose vertical deviations during scratching were measured by an inductive distance recorder and continually registered by an xy-recorder. The depth of scratches in all areas of the enamel was almost constant with only(More)
