Fourth expansion and glucose perturbation of the Dictyostelium kinetic model


European Journal of Biochemistry 74(2): 217-225
Fourth expansion and glucose perturbation of the Dictyostelium kinetic model
The kinetic model of carbohydrate metabolism has been expanded to include: (a) the accumulation of alpha and beta-cellulose, insoluble cell-wall glycogen and mucopolysaccharide; (b) the role of RNA turnover as a source of carbon for end-product synthesis and as a buffer regulating the level of uridine nucleotides in this metabolic network; and (c) the role of purine-nucleoside phosphorylase, 5'-AMP nucleotidase, nucleosidediphosphate kinase and polynucleotide phosphorylase. One of many predictions based on this model is that cells differentiating in the presence of glucose will produce sorocarps with an abnormally high trehalose to cellulose ratio. External perturbation of either the model or of developing cells by glucose increases the levels of sorocarp trehalose and glycogen, 5-fold and 6-fold respectively. Evaluation of the experimental data and the simulation analyses have allowed several predictions to be made concerning the compartmentation of metabolites and the permeability of cells to glucose during differentiation.
