A P-Simulator with Carriers of Cellular Respiration and Mitochondrial Oxidative Metabolism

Lamia Hassaan Ahmed, Amr Ahmed Badr, and Ibrahim Farag Abd El-Rahaman
Abstract—Aerobic respiration is the process of oxidizing food molecules to carbon dioxide and water in the presence of oxygen to produce energy. The functions done by the cell and its mitochondrion to produce energy can be simulated by computer programs. One approach is a membrane system which is also called P system. P systems are usually accompanied by transition rules that represent cellular chemical reactions and carrier rules that represent the transportation of cellular molecules without changing them. The proposed simulator is a Java simulator that implements P systems with transition rules and carriers in order to simulate cellular energy production. The results of the system meet the values of cellular metabolism and correctly vary according to the inputs.

Index Terms—Natural Computing, P Simulator, P Systems, P Systems with carriers.
