We study the fluctuations process for the type-dependent stochastic spin models proposed by Fernández et al.[2], which were used to model biological signaling networks. Using the results of Ethier & Kurtz [1], we analyse the asymmetric basic clock [3], a extension for the simplest cyclic-interaction module, that provides the basic functionality of generating oscillations. Particularly, we apply the central limit theorem for fluctuations process; the dynamics of this limit process is our aim. References. [1] S.N. Ethier, T.G.
