Schoeberl2002 - EGF MAPK

Computational model that offers an integrated quantitative, dynamic, and topological representation of intracellular signal networks, based on known components of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor signal pathways.

The initial model was constructed by Ken Lau from the MATLAB source code.

This model is described in the article:

Abstract:

We present a computational model that offers an integrated quantitative, dynamic, and topological representation of intracellular signal networks, based on known components of epidermal growth factor (EGF) receptor signal pathways. The model provides insight into signal-response relationships between the binding of EGF to its receptor at the cell surface and the activation of downstream proteins in the signaling cascade. It shows that EGF-induced responses are remarkably stable over a 100-fold range of ligand concentration and that the critical parameter in determining signal efficacy is the initial velocity of receptor activation. The predictions of the model agree well with experimental analysis of the effect of EGF on two downstream responses, phosphorylation of ERK-1/2 and expression of the target gene, c-fos.

This model does not exactly reproduce the results given in the original publication. It has, though, the same reaction graph and gives very similar time courses for the conditions depicted in the article.

Several corrections were applied to the parameters described in the paper's supplementary materials. Some parameter names were replaced by the corresponding identical ones: k(r)26 by k(r)18, k(r)27 by k(r)19, k(r)30 by k(r)20, k(r)38 by k(r)24, k(r)39 by k(r)37, k(r)46 by k(r)44, k51 by k49, k(r)54 by k(r)52 and k62 by k62. In particular the parameter values described in the column "remark" of supplementary table 1 override the values explicitely written in the numerical columns:

name in suppl. value used in model value used remarks
kr16 0.055 0.275
k30 7.9e6 2.1e6 as k20
kr30 0.3 0.4 as kr24
k38 3e7 1e7 as k20
kr38 0.055 0.55 as kr24
k52 1.1e5 5.34e7

k5 was used for v116, v119, v122 and v125 in addition of v107, v110 and v113 as listed in the legend of supplementary figure 2. k5 is calculated using th eformula from the matlab file not given in the supplements.

All rate constants were rescaled to minutes (k[min] = 60*k[sec]) and all second order rate constants additionally to molecules/cell with a cell volume of 1 picolitre (k[molecs/cell] = k[M]/(Vc*Na), with Vc=1e-12 l and Na = 6e23).

The association constant of internalized EGF was rescaled to molecules/endosome using an endosomal volume of 4.3 al (= 4.3*10 -18 litre).

The extracellular EGF concentration was converted to molecules per picolitre with a MW of 6045 Da.

[ng/ml] [numb/pl]
50 4962
0.5 49.6
0.125 12.4

With the initial conditions given in the paper, the results could not be reproduced at all. Therefore the initial conditions used in the MATLAB file were adopted for SHC (1.01 * 10 5 instead of 1.01 * 10 6 ) and Ras_GDP. (7.2 * 10 4 instead of 1.14 * 10 7 )
