• flux mode : steady-state flux distribution , proportions of fluxes are fixed
  • elementary flux mode : nondecomposable flux mode, minimal set of enzymes that can operate at steady state with all irreversible reactions proceeding in the direction prescribed thermodynamically
  • linear superposition of elementary flux modes gives all possible steady state flux distributions
  • metabolites are internal or external, external metabolites are "clamped" (reactions don't affect their concentrations), only internal metabolites have to fullfill the steady state condition

Organizations and Elementary Flux Modes

  • organizations tend to be larger then comparable EFMs. In EFMS, reactions can be completely shut off. Not possible for an organization.
