We study methylation dynamics of the chemoreceptors as an Escherichia coli cell moves around in a spatially varying chemoattractant environment. We consider attractant concentration with strong and weak spatial gradient. During the uphill and downhill motion of the cell along the gradient, we measure the temporal variation of average methylation level of the receptor clusters. Our numerical simulations we show that the methylation dynamics depends sensitively on the size of the receptor…

Effect of switching time scale of receptor activity on chemotactic performance of Escherichia coli

It is shown that for large and small switching rates the nature of activity variation show qualitatively different behaviors along a downhill run but similar behavior along an uphill run, which results in a stronger dependence of downhill run duration on the switching rate, and relatively milder dependence for uphill run duration.

Optimal methylation noise for best chemotactic performance of E. coli.

This work model the intracellular reaction network in terms of coupled time evolution of three stochastic variables-kinase activity, methylation level, and CheY-P protein level-and study the effect of methylation noise on the chemotactic performance of the cell.

Dependence of Bacterial Chemotaxis on Gradient Shape and Adaptation Rate

RapidCell is presented, a hybrid model of chemotactic Escherichia coli that combines the Monod-Wyman-Changeux signal processing by mixed chemoreceptor clusters, the adaptation dynamics described by ordinary differential equations, and a detailed model of cell tumbling that dramatically reduces computational costs and allows the highly efficient simulation of E. coli chemotaxis.

Chemotaxis in Escherichia coli: A Molecular Model for Robust Precise Adaptation

A strongly coupled complex of receptors including dynamic CheR and CheB acting on ANs is modeled, which yields sensitive response and precise adaptation over several orders of magnitude of attractant concentrations and accounts for different responses to aspartate and serine.

Dynamic and clustering model of bacterial chemotaxis receptors: Structural basis for signaling and high sensitivity

Bacterial chemotaxis receptors can detect a small concentration gradient of attractants and repellents in the environment over a wide range of background concentration. The clustering of these

Precise adaptation in bacterial chemotaxis through “assistance neighborhoods”

It is shown that “assistance neighborhoods” are necessary for precise adaptation in a model for signaling by clusters of chemoreceptors, and predicts two limits of precise adaptation at large attractant concentrations.

Quantitative Modeling of Escherichia coli Chemotactic Motion in Environments Varying in Space and Time

The model can be used to study E. coli chemotaxis behavior in arbitrary spatiotemporally varying environments and agrees quantitatively with the classical capillary assay experiments where the attractant concentration changes both in space and time.

Modeling the chemotactic response of Escherichia coli to time-varying stimuli

A general theoretical model based on receptor adaptation and receptor–receptor cooperativity is developed that provides a quantitative system-level description of the chemotaxis signaling pathway and can be used to predict E. coliChemotaxis responses to arbitrary temporal signals.

Receptor clustering as a cellular mechanism to control sensitivity

A combination of low threshold of response and wide dynamic range can be attained if the cell has both clusters and single receptors on its surface, particularly if the extent of activity spread can adapt to external conditions.
