Signaling pathways participate in complex information processing networks. These networks handle housekeeping functions of the cell as well as specialized functions such as synaptic plasticity. I report two developments in managing such networks: a compilation of mass-action kinetic models of signaling pathways, and shared motifs in the chemistry of interactions between signaling pathways. These motifs may prove useful in abstracting signaling networks, without compromising chemical reaction details. The combination of a library of signaling pathway models, and high-level rules to connect these pathways, may simplify development of complex signaling network models.
