Abstract [en]

The accuracy of an enzymatic reaction system is the propensity toprocess the correct, or cognate, substrate over similar, non-cognate substrates. Thisis of particular importance to polymerization reactions with a template sequence,like transcription, translation and replication. A theoretical framework for theanalysis of accuracy control is presented, including initial substrate selection andkinetic proofreading. This framework allows for analysis not only of the efficiencyof accuracy control, but also its source in standard free energy differences andequilibrium constants and its relation to the rate of product formation. A key featureis the separation of the selection in a context dependent discard parameter anda context independent discrimination parameter. When the theory is applied tothe example of prokaryote transcription, it is shown that the discard parameter,composed by experimentally well-defined values, induces a large template sequencedependent error rate variation.

Abstract [en]

Reliable transmission of information from DNA to proteins is a pre-requisite for all life, where substitution errors in the polypeptide chain may arise from transcription, aminoacylation of tRNAs or translation. The fidelity control mechanisms in transcription have nevertheless received little attention, based on the assumption that the transcriptional error is masked by the translational error. This thesis shows how accuracy theory can be applied to transcription to elucidate the principles of transcriptional accuracy. The DNA template dependent transcriptional accuracy variation is studied through modelling based on transition state theory, using thermodynamic properties of the nucleic acids in the transcription bubble. The models show that the error frequency variation in transcription causes it to surpass the translational error in some sequence contexts, making transcription a significant source of amino acids substitution errors.
