Paper Abstract

An important problem in modern therapeutics at the proteomic level remains to identify therapeutic targets in a plentitude of high-throughput data from experiments relevant to a variety of diseases. This paper presents the application of novel modern control concepts, such as pinning controllability and observability applied to the glioma cancer stem cells (GSCs) protein graph network with known and novel association to glioblastoma (GBM). The theoretical frameworks provides us with the minimal number of "driver nodes", which are necessary, and their location to determine the full control over the obtained graph network in order to provide a change in the network’s dynamics from an initial state (disease) to a desired state (non-disease). The achieved results will provide biochemists with techniques to identify more metabolic regions and biological pathways for complex diseases, to design and test novel therapeutic solutions.
