Tools for kinetic modeling of biochemical networks
MetadataShow full item record
The number of software packages for kinetic modeling of biochemical networks continues to grow. Although most packages share a common core of functionality, the specific capabilities and user interfaces of different packages mean that choosing the best package for a given task is not trivial. We compare 12 software packages with respect to their functionality, reliability, efficiency, user-friendliness and compatibility. Although most programs performed reliably in all numerical tasks tested, SBML compatibility and the set-up of multicompartmentalization are problematic in many packages. For simple models, GEPASI seems the best choice for nonexpert users. For large-scale models, environments such as Jarnac/JDesigner are preferable, because they allow modular implementation of models. Virtual Cell is the most versatile program and provides the simplest and clearest functionality for setting up multicompartmentalization.

Identification of regulatory structure and kinetic parameters of biochemical networks via mixed-integer dynamic optimization Guillén Gosálbez, Gonzalo; Miró, Antoni; Alves, Rui; Sorribas Tello, Albert; Jiménez Esteller, Laureano (BioMed Central, 2013)Background: Recovering the network topology and associated kinetic parameter values from time-series data are central topics in systems biology. Nevertheless, methods that simultaneously do both are few and lack ...
Down-regulation of fatty acid synthase increases the resistance of Saccharomyces cerevisiae cells to H2O2 Matias, Ana C.; Pedroso, Nuno; Teodoro, Nuno; Marinho, H. Susana; Antunes, Fernando; Nogueira, José Manuel; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique; Cyrne, Luísa (Elsevier, 2007)Changes in plasma membrane permeability caused by H2O2 were recently found to be involved in the adaptation to H2O2, but the mechanism responsible for this change remains largely unknown. Here this mechanism was addressed ...
Matias, Ana C.; Marinho, H. Susana; Cyrne, Luísa; Herrero Perpiñán, Enrique; Antunes, Fernando (Elsevier, 2011)Taking into account published contradictory results concerning the regulation of fatty acid synthase (Fas) by H2O2, we carried out a systematic study where two methods of H2O2 delivery (steady-state and bolus addition) ...
