MOTIVATION The robustness of a biochemical network is defined as the tolerance of variations in kinetic parameters with respect to the maintenance of steady state. Robustness also plays an important role in the fail-safe mechanism in the evolutionary process of biochemical networks. The purposes of this paper are to use the synergism and saturation system(More)
BACKGROUND Noise has many important roles in cellular genetic regulatory functions at the nanomolar scale. At present, no good theory exists for identifying all possible mechanisms of genetic regulatory networks to attenuate the molecular noise to achieve regulatory ability or to amplify the molecular noise to randomize outcomes to the advantage of(More)
MOTIVATION Transcription factor binding sites are known to co-occur in the same gene owing to cooperativity of the transcription factors (TFs) that bind to them. Genome-wide location data can help us understand how an individual TF regulates its target gene. Nevertheless, how TFs cooperate to regulate their target genes still needs further study. In this(More)

BACKGROUND Enterovirus 71 (EV71) infections manifest most commonly as a childhood exanthema known as hand-foot-and-mouth disease (HFMD) and can cause neurological disease during acute infection. PRINCIPAL FINDING In this study, we describe the production, purification and characterization of EV71 virus produced from Vero cells grown in a five-liter(More)
Based on the steady-state analyses of the synergism and saturation system (S-system) model, a robust control method is proposed for biochemical networks via feedback and feedforward biochemical circuits. Two robust biochemical circuit design schemes are developed. One scheme is to improve the system's structural stability so as to tolerate larger kinetic(More)
BACKGROUND With the accumulation of increasing omics data, a key goal of systems biology is to construct networks at different cellular levels to investigate cellular machinery of the cell. However, there is currently no satisfactory method to construct an integrated cellular network that combines the gene regulatory network and the signaling regulatory(More)
BACKGROUND Lung cancer is the leading cause of cancer deaths worldwide. Many studies have investigated the carcinogenic process and identified the biomarkers for signature classification. However, based on the research dedicated to this field, there is no highly sensitive network-based method for carcinogenesis characterization and diagnosis from the(More)
BACKGROUND Candida albicans is a commonly encountered fungal pathogen in humans. The formation of biofilm is a major virulence factor in C. albicans pathogenesis and is related to antidrug resistance of this organism. Although many factors affecting biofilm have been analyzed, molecular mechanisms that regulate biofilm formation still await to be(More)
BACKGROUND Development in systems biology research has accelerated in recent years, and the reconstructions for molecular networks can provide a global view to enable in-depth investigation on numerous system properties in biology. However, we still lack a systematic approach to reconstruct the dynamic protein-protein association networks at different time(More)
