Building reaction kinetic models for amiloid fibril growth

Svetoslav Marinov Markov

Abstract


In this work we  discuss some methodological aspects of the creation and formulation of mathematical  models describing the growth of species from the point of view of reaction kinetics. Our discussion is based on familiar examples of growth models such as logistic growth and enzyme kinetics. We   propose several reaction network  models  for  the amiloid fibrillation processes in the citoplasm. The solutions of the models are sigmoidal functions graphically visualized using  the computer algebra system   Mathematica.
