Emergence of oscillations in a mixed-mechanism phosphorylation system. (English) Zbl 1415.92092
Summary: This work investigates the emergence of oscillations in one of the simplest cellular signaling networks exhibiting oscillations, namely the dual-site phosphorylation and dephosphorylation network (futile cycle), in which the mechanism for phosphorylation is processive, while the one for dephosphorylation is distributive (or vice versa). The fact that this network yields oscillations was shown recently by T. Suwanmajo and J. Krishnan [“Mixed mechanisms of multi-site phosphorylation”, J. R. Soc. Interface 12, No. 107, 20141405 (2015; doi:10\.1098/rsif.2014.1405)]. Our results, which significantly extend their analyses, are as follows. First, in the three-dimensional space of total amounts, the border between systems with a stable versus unstable steady state is a surface defined by the vanishing of a single Hurwitz determinant. Second, this surface consists generically of simple Hopf bifurcations. Next, simulations suggest that when the steady state is unstable, oscillations are the norm. Finally, the emergence of oscillations via a Hopf bifurcation is enabled by the catalytic and association constants of the distributive part of the mechanism; if these rate constants satisfy two inequalities, then the system generically admits a Hopf bifurcation. Our proofs are enabled by the Routh-Hurwitz criterion, a Hopf bifurcation criterion due to Yang, and a monomial parametrization of steady states.
