Structural characteristics in network control of molecular multiplex networks

  title={Structural characteristics in network control of molecular multiplex networks},
  author={Cheng-jun Yuan and Zuyuan Qian and Shi-ming Chen and Sen Nie},
Numerous real-world systems can be naturally modeled as multilayer networks, enabling an efficient way to characterize those complex systems. Much evidence in the context of system biology indicated that the collections between different molecular networks can dramatically impact the global network functions. Here, we focus on the molecular multiplex networks coupled by the transcriptional regulatory network (TRN) and protein-protein interaction (PPI) network, exploring the controllability and… Expand

Figures and Tables from this paper


Internetwork connectivity of molecular networks across species of life
It is found that TRN and PPI networks are non-randomly coupled in the TRN-PPI multiplex across five different eukaryotic species. Expand
Community Structure in Time-Dependent, Multiscale, and Multiplex Networks
A generalized framework of network quality functions was developed that allowed us to study the community structure of arbitrary multislice networks, which are combinations of individual networks coupled through links that connect each node in one network slice to itself in other slices. Expand
Controlling Network dynamics
A network perspective has also been widely applied to explore various complex systems in great depth and is now being applied to address the challenge of integrating mobile devices into the fabric of the network. Expand
Network motifs in integrated cellular networks of transcription-regulation and protein-protein interaction.
This study developed algorithms for detecting motifs in networks with two or more types of interactions and applied them to an integrated data set of protein-protein interactions and transcription regulation in Saccharomyces cerevisiae, finding a two-protein mixed-feedback loop motif, five types of three-protein motifs exhibiting coregulation and complex formation, and many motifs involving four proteins.

The Transcriptional Regulatory Network of Mycobacterium tuberculosis
An updated version of the TR network of Mycobacterium tuberculosis (M.tb), which incorporates newly characterized transcriptional regulations coming from 31 recent, different experimental works available in the literature, is presented, which doubles the size of previous data collections. Expand
Controllability of complex networks
Analytical tools are developed to study the controllability of an arbitrary complex directed network, identifying the set of driver nodes with time-dependent control that can guide the system’s entire dynamics. Expand
Structural measures for multiplex networks.
This paper presents a general framework to describe and study multiplex networks, whose links are either unweighted or weighted, and proposes a series of measures to characterize the multiplexicity of the systems in terms of basic node and link properties. Expand
Control energy of complex networks towards distinct mixture states
It is found that the control energy required to drive a network to an identical final state is lower than that required to arrive a non-identical final state and it is easier to achieve full control in a conformity-based dynamical network. Expand
Transcriptional Regulatory Networks in Saccharomyces cerevisiae
This work determines how most of the transcriptional regulators encoded in the eukaryote Saccharomyces cerevisiae associate with genes across the genome in living cells, and identifies network motifs, the simplest units of network architecture, and demonstrates that an automated process can use motifs to assemble a transcriptional regulatory network structure.

Exact controllability of multiplex networks
We develop a general framework to analyze the controllability of multiplex networks using multiple-relation networks and multiple-layer networks with interlayer couplings as two classes ofExpand
