[…] as co-substrates in addition to methanol: acetate, gluconate, glucose, glycerol, pyruvate, ribose, xylose, and succinate. reaction knockout (ko) analysis was performed using the open-source software flexflux and the uptake rate for all carbon sources was set to 7 mmol gcdw−1 h−1 as an approximation (corresponding to glucose uptake rates under shake flask condition). applying an iterative […]

[…] vrn reconstruction and was therefore well-suited to test the prediction capacity of the vrn module. the prediction of gene expression was performed through a discrete logical modeling method using flexflux under various environmental conditions, including in vitro and in planta conditions (see supplementary data ; supplementary note ). experimental gene expression values were discretized using […]

[…] of bacterial phenotypes were performed by flux balance analysis [] using the genome-scale metabolic network model of r. solanacearum gmi1000 []. simulations were conducted using the software flexflux []. predictions of the phenotypes feasibility were done by optimizing the metabolic fluxes corresponding to each phenotype using the degs as constraint. two sets of degs constraints […]

[…] metabolic network module plus the macromolecule network module was performed using constraint based modeling []. flux distributions were simulated by flux balance analysis using the software flexflux []. various constraints were applied on simulation. environmental conditions were defined by constraining lower and/or upper bound of exchange fluxes depending of the availability […]
