OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study is to model the dynamics of lobular Ca(2+) wave propagation induced by an extracellular stimulus, and to analyze the effect of spatially systematic variations in cell-intrinsic signaling parameters on sinusoidal Ca(2+) response. METHODS We developed a computational model of lobular scale Ca(2+) signaling that accounts… (More)
We developed a multiscale model to bridge neuropeptide receptor-activated signaling pathway activity with membrane electrophysiology. Typically, the neuromodulation of biochemical signaling and biophysics have been investigated separately in modeling studies. We studied the effects of Angiotensin II (AngII) on neuronal excitability changes mediated by… (More)
In the initial online publication of the manuscript, the Supplementary Figures S1 through S16 were not made available online. We regret this production error and have now made these online Supplementary files available.
Cell signaling dynamics and transcriptional regulatory activities are variable within specific cell types responding to an identical stimulus. In addition to studying the network interactions, there is much interest in utilizing single cell scale data to elucidate the non-random aspects of the variability involved in cellular decision making.

Recent single cell studies show extensive molecular variability underlying cellular responses. We evaluated the impact of molecular variability in the expression of cell signaling components and ion channels on electrophysiological excitability and neuromodulation. We employed a computational approach that integrated neuropeptide receptor-mediated signaling… (More)
