Related organisms typically rely on orthologous regulatory proteins to respond to a given signal. However, the extent to which (or even if) the targets of shared regulatory proteins are maintained across species has remained largely unknown. This question is of particular significance in bacteria due to the widespread effects of horizontal gene transfer.(More)
Complex genetic networks consist of structural modules that determine the levels and timing of a cellular response. While the functional properties of the regulatory architectures that make up these modules have been extensively studied, the evolutionary history of regulatory architectures has remained largely unexplored. Here, we investigate the transition(More)
Age-dependent neurodegeneration is a pathological condition found in many metazoans. Despite the biological and medical significance of this condition, the cellular and molecular mechanisms underlying neurodegeneration are poorly understood. The availability of a large collection of mutants exhibiting neurodegeneration will provide a valuable resource to(More)
Studies on the morphology, cell biology, and immunology of invasion have characterized events that are now being studied at the molecular level. The initial events of invasion are receptor-specific. A determinant associated with Duffy blood group antigens is involved in the invasion of human erythrocytes by P. knowlesi and P. vivax. The Duffy Fya antigen(More)
Positive feedback loops are regulatory elements that can modulate expression output, kinetics and noise in genetic circuits. Transcriptional regulators participating in such loops are often expressed from two promoters, one constitutive and one autoregulated. Here, we investigate the interplay of promoter strengths and the intensity of the stimulus(More)
