Abstract

We study, both experimentally and through mathematical modeling, the response of wild type and mutant yeast strains to systematic variations of extracellular calcium abundance. We extend a previously developed mathematical model (Cui and Kaandorp, Cell Calcium, 39, 337 (2006))[3], that explicitly considers the population and activity of proteins with key roles in calcium homeostasis. Modifications of the model can directly address the responses of mutants lacking these proteins. We present experimental results for the response of yeast cells to sharp, step-like variations in external Ca ++ concentrations. We analyze the properties of the model and use it to simulate the experimental conditions investigated. The model and experiments diverge more markedly in the case of mutants laking the Pmcl protein. We discuss possible extensions of the model to address these findings.
