Quantitative analysis of ultrasensitive responses.

Abstract

Ultrasensitive responses are common in cellular information transfer because they allow cells to decode extracellular stimuli in an all-or-none manner. Biochemical responses are usually analyzed by fitting the Hill equation, and the estimated Hill coefficient is taken as a measure of sensitivity. However, this approach is not appropriate if the response… (More)
