Signal transduction systems are known to widely regulate complex biological events such as cell proliferation and differentiation. Because phosphotyrosine-dependent networks play a key role in transmitting signals, a comprehensive and fine description of their dynamic behavior can lead us to systematically analyze the regulatory mechanisms that result in(More)
Copy number variations (CNVs) are common structural variations in the human genome that strongly affect genomic diversity and can play a role in the development of several diseases, including neurodevelopmental disorders. Recent reports indicate that monozygotic twins can show differential CNV profiles. We searched CNVs in monozygotic twins discordant for(More)
BACKGROUND Mutation of the epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) results in a discordant cell signaling, leading to the development of various diseases. However, the mechanism underlying the alteration of downstream signaling due to such mutation has not yet been completely understood at the system level. Here, we report a phosphoproteomics-based(More)
Cell Illustrator is a model building tool based on the Hybrid Functional Petri net with extension (HFPNe). By using Cell Illustrator, we have succeeded in modeling biological pathways, e.g., metabolic pathways, gene regulatory networks, microRNA regulatory networks, cell signaling networks, and cell-cell interactions. The recent development of tandem mass(More)
The recent development of high-resolution DNA microarrays, in which hundreds of thousands of single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) are genotyped, enables the rapid identification of susceptibility genes for complex diseases. Clusters of these SNPs may show runs of homozygosity (ROHs) that can be analyzed for association with disease. An analysis of(More)
Signal transduction systems coordinate complex cellular information to regulate biological events such as cell proliferation and differentiation. Although the accumulating evidence on widespread association of signaling molecules has revealed essential contribution of phosphorylation-dependent interaction networks to cellular regulation, their dynamic(More)
