  • Clocking out: modeling phage-induced lysis of Escherichia coli 

    Ryan, G. L.; Rutenberg, A. D. (2007-07)
    Phage lambda lyses the host Escherichia coli at a precisely scheduled time after induction. Lysis timing is determined by the action of phage holins, which are small proteins that induce hole formation in the bacterium's ...
  • Self-organization of the MinE protein ring in subcellular Min oscillations 

    Derr, J.; Hopper, J. T.; Sain, A.; Rutenberg, A. D. (2009-07)
    We model the self-organization of the MinE ring that is observed during subcellular oscillations of the proteins MinD and MinE within the rod-shaped bacterium Escherichia coli. With a steady-state approximation, we can ...
