Title: Couples Oscillations in Biology

Abstract: The control of proteins by a transcription factor with periodically varying concentration exhibits intriguing dynamical behavior. If the concentration of another element, for instance a ligand responsible for the activation of the transcription factor, is oscillating as well, the system of coupled oscillators can create regions of bistable oscillation states. We investigate how transitions between different entrained states caused by intrinsic noise affect the expression of...
