In this paper we study the state estimation problem for a basic model of gene expression. The model describes the interaction between mRNA and protein(s) within the transcription- translation process. We first study some basic dynamic properties of the model, namely the existence of a unique equilibrium point, its stability and local observability. Then, we address the problem of estimating mRNA concentration by only measuring total protein concentration, and we propose a solution to it by means of different state estimation schemes. Finally, by means of in silico experiments, we compare the performance of the proposed structures.

Abstract

In this paper we study the state estimation problem for a basic model of gene expression. The model describes the interaction between mRNA and protein(s) within the transcription- translation process. We first study some basic dynamic properties of the model, namely the existence of a unique equilibrium point, its stability and local observability. Then, we address the problem of estimating mRNA concentration by only measuring total protein concentration, and we propose a solution to it by means of different state estimation schemes. Finally, by means of in silico experiments, we compare the performance of the proposed structures.
