Why two types of sensor? Why do two types of sensor exist? Hypothesis: Random thing Alternative hypothesis: There are physiological characteristics in the systemic response that are specific to each type of sensor and that offer selective advantages under different functionality requirements

How to compare the inherent differences between designs? X3 X1 X2 X4 X5 X6 X3 X1 X2 X4 X5 X6 Internal Contraints: Corresponding parameters in processes that are identical have the same values in both designs

22
How to compare the inherent differences between designs? X3 X1 X2 X4 X5 X6 X3 X1 X2 X4 X5 X6 External constraints: ’ 2 and h’ 22 are degrees of freedom that the system can use to overcome the loss of bifunctionality. Reference System

23
4/12/201523 How do we implement external contraints? Identify variables that are important for the physiology of the system Choose one of those variables Equal it between the reference system and the alternative system Calculate what the value that leads to such equivalence is for the primed parameter

24
Partial controlled comparisons There can be situations where the physiology is not sufficiently known → Not enough external contraints for all parameters There can be interest in determining the effect of different sets of physiological contrainst upon parameter values→ Alternative sets of external constraints

25
Implementing external constraints Choose Functional Criteria so that the value of the primed parameters can be fixed. External Constraint 1: Both systems can achieve the same steady state concentrations AND fluxes Fixes 2 ’

28
Comparing concentrations and fluxes Concentrations and fluxes can be the same in the presence of a bifunctional sensor or of a monofunctional sensor

29
Comparing signal amplification Signal amplification is larger in the system with bifunctional sensor + - - + + + + +-+ - + + Property in Reference system Property in Alternative system

30
Comparing cross-talk Sensitivity to cross talk is higher in the system with monofunctional sensor + + + - - + +- - + Property in Reference system Property in Alternative system

31
Comparing sensitivities Sensitivities can be larger in either system, depending on which sensitivity and on parameter values.

32
Comparing stability margins The system with a monofunctional sensor is absolutely stable and has larger stability margins than the system with a bifunctional sensor

35
Functionality criteria for effectiveness Appropriate Concentrations → Both Systems = Appropriate Fluxes → Both Systems = Signal amplification → Bifunctional larger Cross-talk amplification → Bifunctional smaller Margins of stability → Bifunctional smaller Sensitivities to parameter changes → Undecided Fast transient responses → Undecided

36
Physiological predictions Bifunctional design lowers X6 signal amplification prefered when cross-talk is undesirable. Monofunctional design elevates X6 signal amplification prefered when cross-talk is desirable.

37
Questions What happens when ratios depend on parameter values to be larger or smaller than one? When the ratios are always larger or smaller than one, independent of parameter values, how much larger or smaller are they, on average?

42
Quantifying the differences To find out how much bigger or smaller or to decide whether an undecided ratio is bigger or smaller than one we have to plug in numbers into the equations

43

Warnings about the filters in sampling Make sure that both the reference and the alternative systems fullfil the filters Make sure that the sign for the kinetic orders calculated through the external constraints is as it should be

4/12/201573 A note on hysteresis Signal Response Unstable steady state At least three steady states must coexist for hysteresis to be a possibility

74
Hysteresis in classical TCS The module with a monofunctional sensor has a steady state that is absolutely stable The module with a bifunctional sensor has unstable steady states→ Hysterisis?

75
m=1 n=1 At most 2 steady states Hysteresis requires 3 steady states Therefore, no hysteresis Finding the steady state

77
Three positive non-multiple roots must exist if hysteresis exists a, b, c and d are sums and differences of products of positive parameters and independent variables

78
Analysis of the roots If all roots are real and positive, the coefficients have alternating signs Necessary but not sufficient condition (2 negative roots can have the same pattern, depending on their values) _ + _ +

79
Finding the steady state No alternating signs No three steady states No hysteresis

80
4/12/201580 No hysteresis in TCS Thus, neither the monofunctional nor the bifunctional module can, in principle exhibit hysteresis
