Molecule List for pathway Gq (Pathway Number 74) in Accession Synaptic_Network (Accession Number 16)
| Default ordering is done according to Pathway Number. Table headers can be used for changing the default ordering.|
arrow indicates that ordering is done according to ascending or descending order.
The entries are grouped according to Pathway Number and are alternately color coded using and color.
|Buffered||Sum Total Of|
|1|| Blocked-rec-Gq||Network||0||1000||No||- |
| || This represents the blocked state of the receptor when bound to a competitive antagonist. Note that this is in the Gq bound form. Simulations had shown that with the available rates, the blocking was minimal if only the unbound receptor could bind the antagonist.|
|2|| G-GDP||Network||1||1000||No||- |
| || This is the G-alpha-beta-gamma trimer in association with GDP. From Pang and Sternweis JBC 265:30 18707-12 1990 we get concentration estimate of 1.6 uM to 0.8 uM. I use 1 uM which is well within this range. |
|3|| mGluR||Network||0.3||1000||No||- |
| || From Mahama and Linderman, Total # of receptors/cell = 1900 However, the density is likely to be very high at the synapse. Fay et al Biochem 30 5066-5075 1991 have a value of 60K receptors per cell for neutrophils which comes to 0.1 uM. Here we have a situation where trying to represent the synapse by a 10 micron cube gives awkward results. I will scale up to 0.3 uM since synaptic receptor density is likely to be higher, with the caveat that I should really be using a more geometrically realistic model.|
|4|| mGluRAntag||Network||0||1000||Yes||- |
| || I implement this as acting only on the Rec-Gq complex, based on a more complete model PLC_Gq48.g which showed that the binding to the receptor alone contributed only a small amount.|
|5|| Rec-Glu||Network||0||1000||No||- |
| || Glu-Receptor complex.|
|6|| Rec-Glu-Gq||Network||0||1000||No||- |
| || This is the ternary complex of receptor, ligand and G protein. |
|7|| Rec-Gq||Network||0||1000||No||- |
| || Turns out that a large fraction of the the receptor binds to the G-protein even in the absence of ligand. This pool represents this step. Fraction of Rec-Gq is 44% of receptor, from Fay et al 1991 Biochem 30:5066-5075 Since this is not the same receptor, this value is a bit doubtful. Still, we adjust the rate consts in Rec-bind-Gq to match.|
