Feedback control in intracellular signaling pathways: Regulating chemotaxis in dictyostelium discoideum

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

Positive and negative feedback loops are used throughout engineering to tradeoff between amplification and robustness. We show how the social amoebae Dictyostelium discoideum uses these same principles to aggregate during starvation, allowing it to survive difficult environmental conditions.
