Table 3 CO gassing analysis during acidogenic phase

From: Capturing the response of Clostridium acetobutylicumto chemical stressors using a regulated genome-scale metabolic model

  Wild type (0.52 h−1)   H inhibited (0.47 h−1)  
Metabolites Lower flux bound Upper flux bound Lower flux bound Upper flux bound
Acetate 20.56 20.56 22.88 24.75
Butyrate 0.01 0.01 −1.99 −0.12
Acetone 0.00 0.00 0.00 0.00
Ethanol 0.00 0.00 0.00 1.87
Butanol 0.00 0.00 0.00 1.87
Hydrogen 13.02 13.02 0.00 0.00
  1. Under CO gassing conditions the model shows inhibition of hydrogen production and butyrate uptake with alcohol but no acetone production. All the values represent production flux ranges with units of mmol gDW−1 h−1. A negative value indicates consumption instead of production. The numbers in parentheses indicate the maximum growth rate values.
