[…] were devoted to aligning metabolic pathways in this way [, –]. for example, pinter et al. [] used enzyme graph to describe metabolic pathway and proposed a tree-based pathway search method called metapathwayhunter to align the enzyme graphs by using a graph theoretic approach. although metapathwayhunter obtains a high efficiency in the alignments, the pathways are restricted to trees.

[…] given the other. this method is more efficient when dealing with large metabolic networks than most other known comparison methods., still, to the best of our knowledge, to date (except for the metapathwayhunter, mph, alignment algorithm of [] on which our paper is based) no one has used a score that reflects both the pathway structure as well as the identity of the enzymes in such studies […]
