signaling network. As we all know signaling pathways are well-known abstractions that explain the mechanisms whereby cells respond to signals, collections of pathways form networks, and interactions between pathways in a network, known as cross-talk, enables further complex signaling behaviours. In silico perturbations can help identify sensitive crosstalk points in the network which can be pharmacologically tested. In this study, we have developed a model for immune signaling cascade in leishmaniasis and based upon the interaction analysis obtained through simulation, we have developed a model network, between four signaling pathways i.e., CD14, epidermal growth factor (EGF), tumor necrotic factor (TNF) and PI3 K mediated signaling. Principal component analysis of the signaling network showed that EGF and TNF pathways can be potent pharmacological targets to curb leishmaniasis. The approach is illustrated with a proposed workable model of epidermal growth factor receptor (EGFR) that modulates the immune response. EGFR signaling represents a critical junction between inflammation related signal and potent cell regulation machinery that modulates the expression of cytokines.
