looking for tools to study additive expression effects in gene pathways/networks

Hi, We are seeking recommendations for approaches to study how gene expression effects may become additive within pathways. We have logFC values for genes differentially expressed in a comparison of control to treatment. We are interested in the following problem: Genes A and B exhibit a modest increase in expression of 1.5 fold each and exist in the pathway A->B->C. Therefore, we expect the effects of the expression changes for A and B to become additive, yielding a net effect on C that is increased by 3-fold compared to baseline. We wish to identify, visualize and study these scenarios within KEGG annotated pathways. I expect that this sort of analysis is implemented in software intended to study complex networks, but can't see it obviously available in Rgraphviz or KeggGraph, for example. Expert advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you. best wishes, Chris Christopher Gregg, PhD.
