Comparing GEF-induced GTP binding between the Hlavacek and Faeder models, using Stites 2007 paper rates

Eitan Pearl, Stephanie Salarbux, Jennifer Nam

CMACS Workshop 2014

the hlavacek model allosteric binding reactions
The HlavacekModel: Allosteric Binding Reactions
  • We added the rates for positive feedback loop – allosteric SOS1 binding (from Cell 2009)
    • Ras
      • Unbound, slow rate
    • Ras-GDP
      • Bound, intermediate rate, 5x faster
    • Ras-GTP
      • Bound, Max allosteric rate, 75x faster
  • Then compared the Hlavacek (Mass-Action) and Faeder(Minimal) Models
hlavacek faeder models with stites rates conversions required
Hlavacek, Faeder Models with Stites’ Rates: Conversions Required!

Stites paper rates into Hlavacek model:

Stites paper rates into Faeder model:

Added units to be comparable to the Hlavacek model

  • Increased SOS1 concentrations
    • Parameter scan and gdat simulations
hlavacek model
  • Increased SOS1 binding rates in the model to Stites paper rates/concentrations
    • Effect: turned off Ras-GDP  Ras-GTP conversion
  • Possible Mutation: Turned off GAP (GTP hydrolysis)

What happens when you increase Sos?
  • Simulation
    • Gdat shows crossover of GTP and GDP
  • Parameter Scan
  • Interpretation: GDP began higher than GTP, but due to allosteric binding, GTP overtakes GDP.
minimal model units conversions mutation effects
Minimal Model: units conversions & mutation effects
  • Replaced minimal model concentration values with Stites paper conversions to molecules
  • Mutations
    • Removing GAP-mediated GTP hydrolysis produces a simulation gdat
    • Looked mainly at the G12V GAP insensitivity mutation (Stites 2007)
      • kfkrkcat
  • Other semi-tested mutations:
    • Eliminated GAP (GAP-insensitive mutation)
    • Removing the effector binding of Ras-GTP

Thank you to

  • Dr. Nancy Griffeth & Naralys
  • Dr. Jim Faeder
  • Our fellow workshop members for collaboration!
the end any questions
The End! Any Questions?

There he goes again…

Yea sure whatever…

I’m about to run the model guys!!!
