Mathematical biology hypothesis about the morphogenesis of the fingers. Dissemination 90th
All multicellular beings began their existence as a single cell. After a short period of undifferentiated multiplication, the group of cells began a stage of the cell differentiation. So that how it starts only a part of the genetic code and forming a new cells specializing the various organs.
Alan Turing in 1952 published a hypothesis of mathematical biology: "Fundaments of Chemical morphogenesis" about the formation of patterns in nature based on the behavior of pairs of proteins. This binary system similar to computer system 01, suggests that the decisions of adjudication functions during embryonic development, work through a system of binary decisions as opposed to the hypothesis of segmentation of the gastrula, whereby, the cells receive information about their position in the embryonic space and therefore differ to form a specific organ.
The hypothesis of Alan Turing confirmed in the prediction about genes that they are expressed in certain cells so they would become the fingers of the forelimbs or the fingers of hind limbs. The three proteins responsible for fingers pattern are called Bmp, Sox9 and Wnt. The trio produces a binary drawing: finger, space, finger, space, finger, space, finger, space, finger until forming the 5 fingers. This process takes about six hours and at the end of the five-striped pattern will become the fingers of one hand or the foot.
