BdPTAL transcript profile and simulated admissible enzyme activity profile. In the left panel red circles represent measured transcript levels in BdPTAL relative to wild type. Blue box plots are the simulated admissible ranges of enzyme activity levels in BdPTAL relative to wild type. The gray dashed line marks no change with respect to wild type. Note that the plot in some sense compares apples (observed transcript changes) and oranges (enzyme activity changes that are admissible according to the model analysis). The right panel depicts the change in carbon influx into the system relative to wild type
