1 Systems Biology Surabhi Agarwal Affiliations The examination of a biological entity as an integrated system, rather than the study of its individual characteristic reactions and components is termed as systems biology.

2 Master Layout This animation consists of 2 parts: Part 1: Systems Biology Concepts Part 2 : Modeling Biological Networks 2. Difference between system study and component study 3. Systems Biology Triangle4. Work flow for Systems analysis 1. Analogy

3 Definitions of the components: Part 1: Systems Biology Concepts Systems biology: It is a discipline for studying organisms as a network of interacting components. 2. Genomics: The entire sequence of an organism’s hereditary information, encoded in DNA is known as the genome and their study is called genomics. 3. Transcriptomics: The study of the set of all RNA molecules, including mRNA, rRNA and tRNA, present in an organism is referred to as the transcriptomics. 4. Proteomics: The study of the entire complement of proteins expressed by the genome of an organism under specific defined conditions is known as the proteomics. 5. Model system: A simple system of networks which can be mapped to the problem under consideration and is easily computationally modeled within available technologies. 6. System: This term can be used to refer to a metabolic pathway, an organelle, a cell, a metabolic pathway, a metabolic system or an entire organism. The meaning of this term depends on the reference of the problem.

4 Analogy / Scenario / Action A car is formed by placing together many of its parts such as screw, tyre, engine, key, etc. If we want to gain an understanding of each of the part as a distinct entity, we will study them separately. But to get an insight into the contribution of the part in forming the car, we need to study it in context of the car. Similarly, Systems Biology is an integrated approach of understanding biological system in context of the patterns of molecular interactions present in them. Is used to fix parts together. Features of a screw cannot describe its role. It can be used to arrange a PC an AC, a TV !?? Used to make a vehicle move faster by reducing friction due to its rotatory motion. It can be used to run a bullock cart, a cycle !!?? Used along with a lock to safeguard your belongings as one lock has one unique keo from which it can be opened. Can be used to lock your room, your suitcase !!?? Used to convert fuel energy into mechanical energy. Can be used to make several equipments operate such as Air plane, Motorbike !!??

5 ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Step 1.a - Two Approaches in Systems Biology Systems is an entity which maintains its existence through a mutual interaction of its constituent parts Systems biology research consists of the 1. Identification of the Parts2.Characterization of the components.3. Exclude the ones which are not a part of the system4. Identify the interaction of the components with each other 5. Identify the interaction of the components with the environment which modulate the parts either directly or indirectly through modulation of internal interactions Schematic to depict the concept of Systems Biology Follow the steps in the animation. Re-draw all figures. The text in the blue boxes on the top needs to be displayed as well as narrated. Animator needs to make sure that the blue box and the narration appears at the right step of the process as shown in the power point animation. Systems is an entity which maintains its existence through a mutual interaction of its constituent parts. Systems biology research consists of the: 1. Identification of the Parts 2. Characterization of the components. 3. Exclude the ones which are not a part of the system 4. Identify the interaction of the components with each other 5. Identify the interaction of the components with the environment which modulate the parts either directly or indirectly through modulation of internal interactions Systems biology and the virtual physiological human Molecular Systems Biology 5: 292; published online 28 July 2009; doi: /msb

6 ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Step 1.b - Two Approaches in Systems Biology SYSTEMS PARTS Reductionist Approach: Disintegrating the system into its component parts and studying them. Integrative Approach: Integrating the study of individual components to form conclusions about system Schematic to depict the concept of Systems Biology Follow the steps in the animation. Re-draw all figures. The text in the blue boxes on the top needs to be displayed as well as narrated. Animator needs to ensure the order of steps and that the blue box and the narration appears at the right step of the process as shown in the power point animation. Systems biology concepts can be understood with the help of two approaches, namely, the “Reductionist” approach and the “Integrative” approach. “Reductionist Approach” focuses on disintegrating the system into its component parts and studying them, whereas, Integrative Approach focuses on Integrating the study of individual components to form conclusions about system.

7 Step 2.a: Studying components ActionAudio Narration Description of the action DNA binding protein DNA Protein Product Lipoprotein Schematic to depict the concept of Systems Biology Figures need to be re-drawn. Follow the steps exactly as shown in the animation. Animator needs to ensure the order of steps. Show the images. Depict the labeling and then remove it from display. Show the zooming effect on the molecules. Consider a cell with its component molecules. Here we study the a “metabolic pathway” as a “biological system”. When the environment of the cell is perturbed a little, the individual components undergo unique changes, such as increase in production rate, or decrease in their amount. At this stage, due to lack of knowledge of the nature of interaction of proteins, we cannot interpret how the system gets affected

8 Step 2.b: Studying Systems ActionAudio Narration Description of the action But when we study the interaction of one component with the other, we can conclude, that the increase in rate if DNA binding protein leads to increase in the synthesized amount of DNA which further changes the final amount of lipo-protein produced. Thus we can see, that to study a system, we need to analyze not just the components, but their interactions therof. Th se biological systems can be: 1. Protein-protein interaction networks 2. Gene regulatory networks 3. Protein-DNA networks 4. Protein lipid interactions 5. Metabolic Networks Schematic to depict the concept of Systems Biology Figures need to be re-drawn. Follow the steps exactly as shown in the animation. Animator needs to ensure the order of steps.

9 Step 2.c: System studies requires “omics” ActionAudio Narration Description of the action To study the systems we need to know about the components and its interactions. The data about the components comes from Genomic and Proteomic studies. The data about the molecular interactions comes from interactomics studies. The information about the proteins comes from Proteomics data. This data can be experimental or it can be retrieved from public domain databases Schematic to depict the concept of Systems Biology Follow the animation steps. Re-create images. Animate and narrate the green boxes. The information about the DNA complement of an organism comes from the Genomics Data. This, again, can either be retreived experimentally or from databases.

Genral protocol for a systems biology experiment A typical work flow for approaching a biological problem with a system biology perspective is: 1. Selection of biological significant problem 2. Creation of a model for the problem which represents computable set of assumptions and hypotheses that will be subjected to experimental validation 3. Compatibility of the model with established experimental facts will reveal the adequacy of the assumptions made. If incompatible, the model will be modified or rejected 4.

13 Master Layout This animation consists of 2 parts: Part 1: Systems Biology Concepts Part 2 : Modeling Biological Networks Stoichiometric AnalysisOrdinary Differential Equations

14 Definitions of the components: Part 2: Modeling Biological Networks ODE: ODE stands for Ordinary Differential Equation. It is a mathematical relation that can be used for modeling biological systems. 2. Stochiometric Model: Modelling a biological network based on its stochiometirc coefficients, reaction rates and metabolite concentrations. 3. Reaction rates: Rate of a reaction is the measure of the formation or degradation of metabolites involved in that reaction. To determine reaction rates, we need substrate concentrations at specific time intervals and values for the reaction constants.

15 Step 1.a - Stoichiometric Analysis ActionAudio Narration Description of the action v: Vector of Reaction rates N: Stoichiometric Matrix S: Vector of Concentration values Static image Display the equation and narrate the text To model more complex networks stochiometric modeling can be used which has 3 basic components: 1. The concentration of all the reactants and products in the form of a vector of Concentration values (S) 2. The Stoichiometric Matrix that describes the production and consumption of each metabolite at each of individual reaction (N) 3. The vector for Rate of all the reactions involved (v) Information on any two will help us in determining the third.

Re-draw all images. Write the equations in proper manner as separate Images Let us consider first 3 reactions of glycolsis and model their stoiciometric matrix. The rows of this matrix represents each reactant and product of all the reaction in this system. The column represents individual reaction, ex- in this case, there are 3 reaction steps. So column 1 represents 1 st step, column 2, second step, column third step and so on. If a particular substrate is consumed in the reaction step, we fill -1 in the matrix. If it is produced we enter +1. And if it is not involved in the reaction, we write 0. For huge systems, we continue to fill the matrix in a similar form, by breaking the entire network into individual steps.

Re-draw all images. Matrix shown in the previous slide is divided into the three parts an each part is defined separately. Here, S is matrix of concentrations of each of the reactants/substrates. N is the matrix of the stoichiometric coefficient describing the production and consumption of reactants and products. V is the matrix of rates of the 3 reactions involved. Since v matrix needs to be multiplied with N, we will transpose it such that the number of rows in v equals the number of columns in N.

Re-draw all images. Write the equations in proper manner as separate text The simple linear equation for modeling networks, takes the following shape in its vector form. Once such a model is constructed, if 2 variables are known, we can determine the unknown variables. The same concept of modeling systems can be applied to larger biological systems like: 1. Metabolic Network 2. Protein-Protein Interaction 3. Gene regulatory Network

19 ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Step 2.a - Ordinary Differential Equations - Basics Schematic to describe ODE Model Follow steps in animation. Re-draw all images. Write the equations in proper manner as separate text Here we describe basic Ordinary Differential Equations (ODE) with the help of simple equations. A general ODE “da by dt is equal to f”, signifies that ‘The change in “a” during a short time interval ‘dt” is “f” times of “dt”’. In the first equation “da by dt is equal to zero”, the concentration of “a” does not change with time. In the second equation, “da by dt is equal to one”, concentrations of “a” changes by dt in time “dt”. In the third equation “da by dt is equal to minus a”, Concentrations of “a” decreases with time. The larger the initial concentration of “a”, the larger is the decrease. The “minus” sign shows the decrease in concentration. The change in “a” during a short time interval ‘dt” is “f” times of “dt” Generalized form of an Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) Concentrations of “a” changes by dt in time “dt” Concentrations of “a” decreases with time. The larger the initial concentration of “a”, the larger is the decrease Concentrations of “a” does not change with time Shows decrease in concentration

20 Step 2.b – Biological Reactions to Ordinary Differential Equations A 0 A B A + BC Law of Mass-Action : The rate of a reaction is proportional to the product of the concentration of the reactants REACTANTS CONCENTRATION OF REACTANTS “a” reduces in concentration by a value which is proportional to its initial concentration. The concentration of “a” reduces and “b” increase with time by a value which is proportional to initial concentration of “a”. The concentration of “a” and “b” reduces and “c” increase with time by a value which is proportional to initial concentration of “a” and “b” CONSTANTS OF PROPORTIONALITY

21 Step 5: ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Schematic to describe ODE Model The Law of Mass-Action says that “The rate of a reaction is proportional to the product of the concentration of the reactants”. The highlighted variables depict the position of “reactant” in the “reactions” and the position of “concentration of reactants” in the “ODEs”. The only reactant involved in first reaction is “A”. As the equation shows, “A” reduces to zero with time. From the ODE, we infer, that as the time increases, a reduces in concentration by a value which is proportional to its initial concentration. In the second reaction, “A” converts to “B” with time. From the ODE for “A”, we infer, that as the time increases, “a” reduces in concentration by a value which is proportional to its initial concentration. From the ODE for “B”, we infer, that as the time increases, “b” increases in concentration by a value which is proportional to initial concentration of “a”. In the third reaction the concentration of “a” and “b” reduces and “c” increase with time by a value which is proportional to initial concentration of “a” and “b”.

23 ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Glucose Glucose-6-PFructose-6-PFructose-1,6 Bi-phosphate ADP 2ADP ATP + AMP ATP ADP v1v4 v5 v8 v6 v7 ATP ADP v3 Step 2.d - Ordinary Differential Equations v2 Schematic to describe ODE Model Follow steps in animation. Re-draw all images. Write the equations in proper manner as separate text In this example we construct a model for the initial steps of Glycolysis with the help of ODE models. Here you can see the reactions in glycolysis. Several reactions are accompanied by the consumption of ATP into ADP. The rate of each individual reaction is represented by a variable v. These rates are determined by reaction kinetics.

24 Step 2.e - Ordinary Differential Equations ActionAudio Narration Description of the action Glucose Glucose-6-PFructose-6-PFructose-1,6 Bi-phosphate ADP 2ADP ATP + AMP ATP ADP v1v4 v5 v8 v6 v7 ATP ADP v3 v2 Schematic to describe ODE Model Follow steps in animation. Re-draw all images. Write the equations in proper manner as separate text Now, to determine the concentration of each of the substrates at a given time, we need to account for all the reactions which involve this substrate. Thus, to determine the concentration of G6P at a given time, we need to determine its rate of production (v1) and its rate of consumption (v2, v3). The same process when extrapolated to all the reactants and products of a metabolic pathway, we get the ODE Model for glycolysis..
