Positive feedback and cooperativity in the regulation of gene expression are generally considered to be necessary for obtaining bistable expression states. Recently, a novel mechanism of bistability termed emergent bistability has been proposed which involves only positive feedback and no cooperativity in the regulation. An additional positive feedback loop is effectively generated due to the inhibition of cellular growth by the synthesized proteins. The mechanism, demonstrated for a synthetic…

TLDR
This paper shows that a threshold response in the gene expression changes to a bistable response as the regulation on sRNA synthesis or degradation is altered, and studies the variations in the probability distributions under different values of noise strength and correlations.
Regime shifts driven by dynamic correlations in gene expression noise.
TLDR
It is found that an increase in noise correlation time in the degradation rate can induce a regime shift from a low to a high protein concentration state and enhance the bistable regime, while an increaseIn noise correlationTime in the basal rate retains the bimodal distribution.
Early signatures of regime shifts in gene expression dynamics.
TLDR
This paper considers sudden regime shifts in the gene expression dynamics described by a fold-bifurcation model involving bistability and hysteresis in the bacterial population B. subtilis and determines some early signatures of the regime shifts between competence and noncompetence.
Emergent correlations in gene expression dynamics as footprints of resource competition.
TLDR
This paper employs mathematical modelling and in-silico experiments to identify the sources of resource trade-off and to quantify its impact on the function of a genetic circuit, keeping their focus on regulation of immediate downstream proteins, which are often used as protein read-outs.
Noises-induced toggle switch and stability in a gene regulation network
It is well-known that noises are inevitable in gene regulatory networks due to the low-copy numbers of molecules and environmental fluctuations. In this paper, we investigate the stationary
Origins of binary gene expression in post-transcriptional regulation by microRNAs
TLDR
This paper introduces some additional features into the proposed mathematical model of post-transcriptional regulation by microRNAs, and derives the conditions for obtaining stochastic binary gene expression in two specific cases.
Bifurcation and criticality
TLDR
The dynamical behaviour predicted by the two models is in qualitative agreement with experimental observations and opens up the possibility of exploring critical point phenomena in laboratory populations and synthetic biological circuits.
Emergent Regulatory Response and Shift of Half induction point under Resource Competition in Genetic circuits
TLDR
This paper has studied a three-gene motif under resource competition where interesting behaviour, similar to regulatory responses occur due to limited supply of necessary resources, and focuses on two specific aspects, namely, dynamic range and half-induction point, which inherently describe the circuit functionalities, and can be affected by corresponding resource affinity and availability.

Bistability, Probability Transition Rate and First-Passage Time in an Autoactivating Positive-Feedback Loop
TLDR
This paper investigates how the probability transition rate and first-passage time in an autoactivating positive-feedback loop with bistability are affected by the maximum transcriptional rate, the intensities of additive and multiplicative noises, and the correlation of additiveandmultiplicative noises.
Noise Can Induce Bimodality in Positive Transcriptional Feedback Loops Without Bistability
TLDR
Using a synthetic system in budding yeast, it is shown that positive feedback involving a promoter with multiple transcription factor (TF) binding sites can induce a steady-state bimodal response without cooperative binding of the TF.
Positive feedback, stochasticity and genetic competence.
TLDR
The appearance of bimodal protein distributions in B. subtilis cell population is explained in the framework of three possible scenarios: the system is monostable in a deterministic description and stochasticity in gene expression is solely responsible for the appearance of the two expression states.
Noise-based switches and amplifiers for gene expression.
TLDR
A model describing the regulation of gene expression and the effects of noise are developed and it is suggested that an external noise source could be used as a switch and/or amplifier for gene expression.

Prediction and measurement of an autoregulatory genetic module
TLDR
This work demonstrates that isolated gene networks, coupled with proper quantitative descriptions, can elucidate key properties of functional genetic modules and lead to the modular dissection of naturally occurring gene regulatory networks.
Enhancement of cellular memory by reducing stochastic transitions
TLDR
The key parameters that determine the stability of cellular memory are explored by using the yeast galactose-signalling network as a model system and a model reveals that fluctuations are trapped more efficiently at higher Gal80p concentrations.

TLDR
It is found that, under large cross-correlation intensity, a successive switch process occurs with an increase of noise intensities, and a critical noise intensity exists at which the MFPT of the switch process is the largest.
