Pattern formation requires the interaction of a self-enhancing component and its long-raning antogonist. If once established maxima are quenched by a second localacting antagonist, three-component systems result that allow the generation of highly dynamic patterns. Either out-of-phase oscillations in groups of cells, traveling waves with a soliton-like behavior or a regular flashing up of signals at displaced positions are possible. By comparison with the pole-to-pole oscillations in E.coli… CONTINUE READING
