Our research article on stability of pattern formation in systems with dynamic source regions appeared last week in Physical Review Letters, The work is based on novel analytical framework developed by Maciej Majka. We showed that gene expression patterns can form stable domains with well-defined overlap region, yet without external feedback these domains can still shift. Thanks to analytical description we were able to provide stability conditions for all possible two-gene regulatory network motifs. This work has possible implications for fruit fly pattern specification, limb formation and spinal cord development.
