It has been recently observed that the dynamical properties of mass action systems arising from many models of biochemical reaction networks can be characterized 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… 

Network Translation and Steady-State Properties of Chemical Reaction Systems

It is shown that network translation can often provide a method for deriving the steady-state value of the robust species and is presented with a MILP algorithm for the identification of translated chemical reaction networks that improves on previous approaches, allowing for easier application of the theory.

A mixed-integer linear programming framework capable of determining whether a given mass action system has a dynamically equivalent or linearly conjugate representation which has an underlying network satisfying the Deficiency One Theorem is presented.

A Deficiency-Based Approach to Parametrizing Positive Equilibria of Biochemical Reaction Systems

Computing Weakly Reversible Deficiency Zero Network Translations Using Elementary Flux Modes

A computational method for performing structural translation is presented, which has been studied recently in the context of analyzing the steady states and dynamical behavior of mass-action systems derived from biochemical reaction networks, and how it can be incorporated into recently proposed algorithms for establishing mono- and multistationarity in biochemical reaction systems.

A note on "MAPK networks and their capacity for multistationarity due to toric steady states"

It is shown that the capacity for toric steady states in the three networks analyzed in that paper can be derived using the process of network translation, which corresponds the original mass action system to a generalized massaction system with the same steady states.

Linear conjugacy of chemical kinetic systems.

A general computational solution to construct linear conjugates of any "rate constant-interaction function decomposable" (RID) chemical kinetic systems, wherein each of its rate function is the product of a rate constant and an interaction function.

Complex Balanced Equilibria of Weakly Reversible Poly-Pl Systems: Existence, Stability, and Robustness
