1 Modeling of lac operon regulation Maxim Tikhonov

2 Goals Create model of lac operon regulation Investigate the origin of bistability.

5 [Iex] was used as the main bifurcation parameter Within the range [Iex] = 24.2-32.4 uM, two branches of stable steady states exist, separated by branch of unstable steady states.

6 Conclusion Model of lac operon regulation was implemented. The system exhibits bistability within the range [Iex] = 24.2-32.4 uM
