1 Solution of some equations in Biochemistry J.P Bennett J.H. Davenport H.M. Sauro School of Mathematical Sciences Institue of Grassl Animal Production University of Bath Poultry Division Claverton Down Roslin, Bath BA2 7AY Midlothian Engl Scotl Abstract It is possible to write down the equations governing a one-stage enzyme-catalysed reaction (according to Michaelis-Menton kinetics quite easily, deduce information about the steady-state flow in such a system. The situation is somewhat more complicated if several such reactions form a linear chain. We have applied Gröber-basis techniques to solve such systems. Introduction. If we consider an enzyme-catalysed reaction in steady-state, such as (with the underlying first-order mechanism X 0 v X 1 X 0 + E k1 X 0 E k3 k2 k4 X 1 + E in which we have written K eq = k 1k 3 k 2 k 4 K m,f = k 2 + k 3 k 1 K m,r = k 2 + k 3 as is stard the rate of conversion of X 0 to X 1 (flux can be written as k 4 (overall equilibrium constant (forward Michaelis constant (reverse Michaelis constant V max = [E T OT ]k 3 (maximum flux [E T OT ] = [E] + [X 0 E] (conservation of enzyme v = V m Km ([X 0 ] [X 1 ]K eq 1 + [X 0] + [X. (1 1] K m,f K m,r When the reactions are more complex, e.g. X 0 v 1 S1 v 2 X2, it becomes harder to analyse the situation, even under the steady-state assumption that [S 1 ] is constant. We would like to eliminate [S 1 ] from the two equations (analogous to (1 which determine the fluxes in the two stages. This has been done [...], the result is that [S 1 ] satisfies a quadratic equation. As far as the authors are aware, the case of three-stage linear chains has not been solved. 1

2 Our solution. The three-stage chain is X 0 v 1 S1 v 2 S2 v 3 X3. From the point of view of Gröbner-bases, the problem is, in principle, trivial. We have the equation v 1 = v 2 = v 3 at steady state, all that is required is to eliminate the variables [S 1 ] [S 2 ] from this. We used REDUCE-3 [Hearn, 1983] running on a Sun 3/160 a Gröbner-basis package written by the second author. The only delicate point is the ring in which the Gröbner-basis is to be calculated: this is L[s 1, s 2 ] where s 1 s 2 are [S 1 ] [S 2 ] (trying to mix biochemical notation with that of modern algebra is confusing at best!, where L is the field generated over the rational by all the other indeterminates that appear in the equations. The REDUCE input to solve this problem is surprisingly simple: v1:=(v1m/k1mf*(x0-s1*k1eq/(1+x0/k1mf+s1/k1mr; grobner!-constant v1m,k1mf,k1mr,k1eq; v2:=(v2m/k2mf*(s1-s2*k2eq/(1+s1/k2mf+s2/k2mr; grobner!-constant v2m,k2mf,k2mr,k2eq; v3:=(v3m/k3mf*(s2-x3*k3eq/(1+s2/k3mf+x3/k3mr; grobner!-constant v3m,k3mf,k3mr,k3eq; grobner!-constant x0,x3; grobner(num(v1-v2,num(v1-v3; The calls to grobner!-constant declare that the indeterminates mentioned belong in L, rather than to the polynomial extension of L. The call to grobner passes in two polynomials (the numerators of v 1 v 2 v 1 v 3, computes a lexicographical-order Gröbner-basis for the resulting ideal of L[s 1, s 2 ]. The calculation took about five seconds, compared with one minute if all three equations are given to grobner (if only v 1 v 2 v 2 v 3 are given to grobner, the calculation runs for about 15 minutes before exceeding the 2Mb heap available in our version of REDUCE. It turns out that s 1 satisfies a cubic equation, reproduced in the appendix, s 2 is linear in s 1 (the details are also in the appendix. REDUCE is capable of generating equations in FORTRAN form, machine-readable copies of these equations are obtainable from the first author. Conclusions. Acknowledgements. The Gröbner-basis package used was written while the second author was visiting the Royal Technical Highschool, Stockholm, the author would like to acknowledge the hospitality helpful suggestions of Stefan Arnborg Ian Cohen.
