MicroRNA 16 feedback loop with p53 and Wip1 can regulate cell fate determination between apoptosis and senescence in DNA damage response

PLoS One
PMCID: 5624635
PMID: 28968438
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0185794

[…] In we present an estimate of the probabilities of each phenotype for the wild-type case using the Avatar algorithm (exact exit probabilities) in GINsim with 750 runs. The other parameters of the algorithm were set to the default values. The algorithm performs an exhaustive search in the state spac […]


Logical Modeling and Dynamical Analysis of Cellular Networks

Front Genet

PMID: 27303434
DOI: 10.3389/fgene.2016.00094

[…] regulator of Th17 cells) and Foxp3 (the master regulator of Treg cells). Further insight into the reachability of the three attractors can be extracted by performing a reachability analysis with the Avatar algorithm, quantifying the reachability probability of each attractor (Mendes et al., ). A thousand Avatar simulations were enough to observe a stabilization of the reachability probabilities o […]
