A key circuit in the response of cells to damage is the p53­mdm2
feedback loop. This circuit shows sustained, noisy oscillations in
individual human cells following DNA breaks. Here, we apply an
engineering approach known as systems identification to quantify
the in vivo interactions in the circuit on the basis of accurate meas-
urements of its power spectrum. We obtained oscillation time
courses of p53 and Mdm2 protein levels from several hundred cells
