The negative feedback between mRNA and regulatory-protein
production may result in oscillations in the kinetics of
gene transcription. If the mRNA and/or protein number
are low, the oscillations may be irregular.
We present mean-field calculations and Monte-Carlo simulations
showing evolution of such oscillations during the cellular
growth and division. The oscillations are found to be fairly
stable with respect to the cellular growth.
