29 Copy Number Control Models Replication of ColE1 & R1 Plasmids Determine the factors that govern the plasmid copy number cellular growth rate One way to address this question is via the use of a kinetic analysis of the replication process, and relate copy number to overall cellular growth. Why? the copy number can be an important determinant of cloned protein production in recombinant microorganisms

Plasmid, RNA I, RNA II, Rom, All the constants degradation, initiation, inhibition RNaseH rate is very fast instantaneous DNA polymerization is very rapid Simplify by subsuming [RNA II] model RNA I inhibition RNA I and RNA II transcription is independent (neglect convergent transcription) Rom protein effects constant Consider 2 species: RNA I and plasmid Many more assumptions... Assumptions? RNA II RNA I RNA Polymerase Rom RNA II RNA I RNase H DNA Polymerase

35 Stochastic models for CNC Paulsson & Ehrenberg, J Mol Biol 1998;279:73-88. Trade-off between segregational stability and metabolic burden: a mathematical model of plasmid ColE1 replication control. (Pub), J Mol Biol 2000;297:179-92. Molecular clocks reduce plasmid loss rates: the R1 case. (Pub) While copy number control for ColE1 efficiently corrects for fluctuations that have already occurred, R1 copy number control prevents their emergence in cells that by chance start their cycle with only one plasmid copy. Regular, clock- like, behaviour of single plasmid copies becomes hidden in experiments probing collective properties of a population of plasmid copies ... The model is formulated using master equations, taking a stochastic approach to regulation”

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
