Presentation Transcript

We can list the basic reaction rates and stochiometry

numsites = total # of sites on a gene, G = # sites bound

M = mRNA, Po = unmodified protein, Pt = modified protein

Transcription trans or 0 +M

Translation tl*M +Po

Protein Modification conv*Po -Po, +Pt

M degradation degM*M -M

Po degradation degPo*Po -Po

Pt degradation degPt*Pt -Pt

Binding to DNA bin(numsites - G)*Pt -Pt, +G

Unbinding to DNA unbin*G -G

We normally track concentrationLet’s track # molecules instead

- Let M, Po, Pt be # molecules
- First order rate constants (tl, unbin, conv, degM, degPo and degPt) have units 1/time and stay constant
- Zero order rate constant (trans) has units conc/time, so multiply it by volume
- 2nd order rate constant (bin) has units 1/(conc*time), so divide it by volume

numsites = total # of sites on a gene, G = # sites bound

M = mRNA, Po = unmodified protein, Pt = modified protein

V = Volume

Transcription trans*V or 0 +M

Translation tl*M +Po

Protein Modification conv*Po -Po, +Pt

M degradation degM*M -M

Po degradation degPo*Po -Po

Pt degradation degPt*Pt -Pt

Binding to DNA bin/V(numsites - G)*Pt -Pt, +G

Unbinding to DNA unbin*G -G

How would you simulate this?

- Choose which reaction happens next
- Find next reaction
- Update species by stochiometry of next reaction
- Find time to this next reaction

How to find the next reaction

- Choose randomly based on their reaction rates

trans*V

tl*M

degM*M

degPo*Po

degPt*Pt

conv*Po

unbin*G

bin/V(numsites - G)*Pt

Random #

Now that we know the next reaction modifies the protein

- Po = Po - 1
- Pt = Pt + 1
- How much time has elapsed
- a0 = sum of reaction rates
- r0 = random # between 0 and 1

This method goes by many names

- Computational Biologists typically call this the Gillespie Method
- Gillespie also has another method

- Material Scientists typically call this Kinetic Monte Carlo

Myth 1:“Mass Action Formulations do not account for Stochasticity”

A Cyanobacteria

B

C

- Here a protein can be in 3 states, A, B or C
- We start the system with 100 molecules of A
- Assume all rates are 1, and that reactions occur without randomness (it takes one time unit to go from A to B, etc.)

Mass Action Representation Cyanobacteria

Matlab simulation Cyanobacteria

Mass Action represents a limiting case of Stochastics Cyanobacteria

- Mass action and stochastic simulations should agree when certain “limits” are obtained
- Mass action typically represents the expected concentrations of chemical species (more later)

Myth 2: CyanobacteriaStochastic and Mass Action Approaches agree only if there are enough molecules

What matters is the number of reactions Cyanobacteria

- This is particularly important for reversible reactions
- By the central limit theorem, fluctuations dissapear like n-1/2
- There are almost always a very limited number of genes,
- Ok if fast binding and unbinding

There are several representations in between Mass Action and Gillespie

- Chemical Langevin Equations
- Master Equations
- Fokker-Planck
- Moment descriptions

We will illustrate this with an example GillespieKepler and Elston Biophysical Journal 81:3116

Distribution of molecules each stateoften looks Gaussian

Moment Descriptions each state

- Gaussian Random Variables are fully characterized by their mean and standard deviation
- We can write down odes for the mean and standard deviation of each variable
- However, for bimolecular reactions, we need to know the correlations between variables (potentially N2)

Towards Fokker Planck each state

- Let’s divide the master equation by the mean m*.
- Although this equation described many states, we can smooth the states to make a probability distribution function

Chemical Langevin Equations each state

- If we don’t want the whole probability distribution, we can sometimes derive a stochastic differential equation to generate a sample
