A generic MAPK cascade model for random parameter sampling analysis (Mai and Liu 2013)

A generic three-tier MAPK cascade model constructed by comparing previous MAPK models covering a range of biosystems. Pseudo parameters and random sampling were employed for qualitative analysis. A range of kinetic behaviors of MAPK activation, including ultrasensitivity, bistability, transient activation and oscillation, were successfully reproduced in this generic model. The mechanisms were revealed by statistic analysis of the parameter sets.

Model Type: Molecular Network

Model Concept(s): Methods

Simulation Environment: MATLAB
