In this paper, the authors will discuss the similarities found in the dynamics of cellular signal transduction networks in nature and that of communication network protocols. Based on the simplified observations from the signaling processes of the cyclin (cln) protein during the cell cycle in yeast, they formulate a generic master equation, which describes the general robustness of the system and can be applied to characterize different variants of the Transmission Control Protocol (TCP) such as FAST, Reno, HSTCP, or STCP. By presenting the generalized controller mechanism for describing the dynamics of cln signaling at system level, they infer that any corresponding second order system is similarly controllable.
