Abstract

Development processes of multi-cellular systems have attracted attention for a long time. The macroscopic model having six categories of molecules shows that the antagonism between the negative controllers and the positive replication factors induces bifurcations in stem and pluripotent cells at rhythmic intervals comprising about 6-7 cell divisions. Our theoretical model for the morphogenetic process shows that this cycle of 6-7 cell divisions, i.e., branching time between periodic bifurcation events, corresponds to the emergence timings of early developing stage, the nervous system, the respiratory system, and the circulatory system.
