Small monomeric G-proteins control cellular behavior, cycling between inactive GDP-bound and active GTP-bound states. Activating and deactivating transitions are regulated by guanine nucleotide exchange factors (GEFs) and GTPase activating proteins (GAPs), respectively. G-proteins can control different GEF and GAP activities, thereby creating GTPase signaling cascades. Here, we characterize all 128 different wiring topologies of two-layer cascades, which include feedforward/feedback… CONTINUE READING
