**Polymerase Chain Reaction: A Markov Process Approach**Mikhail V. Velikanov et al. J. theor. Biol. 1999 Summarized by 임희웅 2003.8.12**Contents**• Introduction • Markov Process Model for Primer Extension • Model for Multi-Cycle PCR Runs • Numerical Results • Discussion**Introduction**• A stochastic approach to PCR • Focus on the microscopic nature of amplification process • Elementary reaction: binding of dNTP • Markov process master equation • Analytical solution for the probability distribution of DNA length • Main qualitative feature • Sensitivity of the reaction condition • The amplification plateau effect • Optimal duration of amplification for each cycle**l0**l l+1 … L … Markov Process Model for Primer Extension • Amplification process as Markov process • Binding of dNTP occurs randomly, with the probability per unit time determined entirely by the present state of the system. • State: length of primer • Reaction rate: w = k(t) n • n: total number of dNTP in the current system • k(t): the rate coefficient which depends on temperature (time) • l + n = l0+ n0 = m0 constant • n0: initial total number of dNTP**Master Equation**• The master equation for the primer extension process**Model for Multi-Cycle PCR Runs**• Additional feature • Increasing number of DNA molecules • Statistical independence of the extension process • n0: initial number of dNTPs per template strand • np: the number of primers per template strand • Complementarity • Two kinds of strand: +, - • Pi+(l,n): Prob. distribution of + strand in ith cycle**Evolution of Probability Distribution**• ηn: duration of the extension phase of each cycle The distribution for the first cycle Consumed dNTP in first cycle**Numerical Result**• Simulation for PCR Runs**Optimization of PCR Runs**Arrhenius’ law**Discussion**• Primary assumption • DNA synthesis occurs independently on each template strand. • Advantage in Markov process approach • The model can be solved exactly by analytical means. simple calculation • It accounts for the fluctuations inherent in PCR kinetics through a description of their natural microscopic source. • The model is easy to modify and can be used as the basis for constructing dedicated algorithms for numerical simulations of PCR.
