Diffusion of Calcium and Metabolites

K. Tsaneva-Atanasova, C. L. Zimliki, R. Bertram, and A. Sherman, 2006. Diffusion of calcium and metabolites in pancreatic islets: Killing oscillat ions with a pitchfork, Biophys. J., 90:3434--3446. [PubMed]

The models in this paper show that oscillations can be killed by a pitchfork bifurcation when cells are coupled through the slow negative feedback variable, which is calcium, for a simple electrical oscillator, and G6P, for a glycolytic oscillator.
