**Calcium-calmodulin dependent kinase II (CaMKII)**

One holoenzyme = 12 subunits Kolodziej et al. J Biol Chem 2000

**Model of bistability in the CaMKII-PP1 system: **

autocatalytic activation and saturating inactivation. a) Autophosphorylation of CaMKII (2 rings per holoenzyme): P0 P1 slow P1 P2 fast Lisman and Zhabotinsky, Neuron 2001

6
**b) Dephosphorylation of CaMKII by PP1 (saturating inactivation)**

= phosphatase, PP1 k1 k2 k-1 Total rate of dephosphorylation can never exceed k2.[PP1] Leads to cooperativity as rate per subunit goes down Stability in spite of turnover

7
**Bistability in total phosphorylation of CaMKII**

[Ca2+]=0.1M (basal level) Rate of dephosphoryation Total reaction rate Rate of phosphorylation No. of active subunits 12N

8
**Phosphorylation dominates at high calcium**

[Ca2+] = 2M (for LTP) Rate of dephosphoryation Rate of phosphorylation Total reaction rate No. of active subunits 12N

9
**The “Normal” State of Affairs**

(one stable state, no bistability)

10
**How to get bistability 1) Autocatalysis: k+ increases with [C]**

2) Saturation: total rate down, (k-)[C], is limited

**Small numbers of CaMKII holoenzymes in PSD**

Petersen et al. J Neurosci 2003

38
Simulation methods Stochastic implementation of reactions, of rates Ri(t) using small numbers of molecules via Gillespie's algorithm: 1) Variable time-steps, ∆t: P(∆t) = ∑Ri exp(-∆t ∑Ri) 2) Probability of specific reaction: P(Ri) = Ri/∑Ri 3) Update numbers of molecules according to reaction chosen 4) Update reaction rates using new concentrations 5) Repeat step 1)

**System of 20 holoenzymes undergoes stable LTP**

Fraction of subunits phosphorylated Time (yrs)

42
**Spontaneous transitions in system with 4 holoenzymes**

43
**Average lifetime between transitions increases**

exponentially with system size

44
**Large-N limit, like hopping over a potential barrier**

Reaction rates Effective potential No. of active subunits 12N

45
**1) Chemical reactions in biology:**

x-axis = “reaction coordinate” = amount of protein phosphorylation 2) Networks of neurons that “fire” action potentials: x-axis = average firing rate of a group of neurons

46
**Why is this important? Transition between states = loss of memory**

Transition times determine memory decay times.

47
**Something like physics**

Barrier height depends on area between “rate on” and “rate off” curves, which scales with system size.

48
**Physics analogy: barriers with noise ...**

Inherent noise because reactions take place one molecule at a time. Rate of transition over barrier decreases exponentially with barrier height ... (like thermal physics, with a potential barrier, U and thermal noise energy proportional to kT ) ?

49
**General result for memory systems**

Time between transitions increases exponentially with scale of the system. Scale = number of molecules in a biochemical system = number of neurons in a network Rolling dice analogy: number of rolls needed, each with with probability, p to get N rolls in row, probability is pN time to wait increases as (1/p)N = exp[N.ln(1/p)]
