  1. Comparisons made between glucose with and without constraints on production of reducing equivalents and glycerol. Equivalent carbon flux values were chosen for both glucose and glycerol. All values except for carbon source uptake represent production fluxes with units of mmol gDW−1 h−1. Increasing availability of reducing equivalents led to increased product formation for all cases except acetate.
