A Model of Axis Determination for the Drosophila Wing Disc

  title={A Model of Axis Determination for the Drosophila Wing Disc},
  author={K. Kyoda and H. Kitano},
In this paper we propose a comprehensive model of axis determination for the Drosophila wing disc, and we simulate spatio-temporal gene expression patterning in the Drosophila wing disc. The role of interaction among several genes involved has been analyzed systematically in this simulation. The results illustrate that successful reconstruction of the gene expression patterns observed in the actual wing disc requires several hypothetical gene regulations. Above all, we predict the possible… Expand
