Criticality in Tissue Homeostasis: Models and Experiments

23 Jan 2020 Ghosh Somsubhra Bose Indrani

There is considerable theoretical and experimental support to the proposal that tissue homeostasis in the adult skin can be represented as a critical branching process. The homeostatic condition requires that the proliferation rate of the progenitor (P) cells (capable of cell division) is counterbalanced by the loss rate due to the differentiation of a P cell into differentiated (D) cells so that the total number of P cells remains constant...
