A Computational Approach to Steady State Correspondence of Regular and Generalized Mass Action Systems
Abstract
It has been recently observed that the dynamical properties of mass action systems arising from many models of biochemical reaction networks can be derived by considering the corresponding properties of a related generalized mass action system. The correspondence process known as network translation in particular has been shown to be useful in characterizing a system's steady states. In this paper, we further develop the theory of network translation with particular focus on a subclass of translations known as improper translations. For these translations, we derive conditions on the network topology of the translated network which are sufficient to guarantee the original and translated systems share the same steady states. We then present a mixedinteger linear programming (MILP) algorithm capable of determining whether a mass action system can be corresponded to a generalized system through the process of network translation.
