Abstract

RS feedback models have been successful in explaining the observed phenomenon of clustering in autonomous oscillation in yeast, but current models do not include the biological reality of dynamical delay and do not have the related property of quorum sensing. Here an RS type ODE model for cell cycle feedback, including an explicit term modeling a chemical feedback mediating agent, is analyzed. New dynamics include population dependent effects: subcritical pitchfork bifurcations, and quorum sensing occur. The model suggests new experimental directions in autonomous oscillation in yeast.
