[…] graph-based methods can make prediction with similar accuracy as stoichiometry-based methods. moreover, stoichiometry-based pathway search methods can operate on the s matrix alone (such as metatool 5.0 , optstoic , and xtms ) to identify cofactor-balanced pathways. however, the reversibility of a reaction has to be defined as constraints alongside the s matrix while a directed graph […]

[…] irreversible due to biochemical knowledge., let us consider, for example, the system of monosaccharide metabolism (see ) analyzed earlier []. when all reactions are considered reversible, running metatool (or any other appropriate program) shows that 19 pairs of efms are found. in the cited paper, eight reactions such as phosphofructokinase, fructose-biphosphatase and glucose-6-phosphate […]

[…] acid molecules will be converted into membrane phospholipids in order to maintain the fluidity of this biological barrier., the calculation of elementary modes was performed in matlab using the metatool toolbox [] (modo_elementar.m code in the supplemental information). a total of 13 elementary flux modes were found for the fatty acid biosynthesis pathway of e. antarcticum b7 (additional […]

[…] metabolites”). those flux modes (combinations of enzymes) which cannot be decomposed further without affecting this balance are called elementary modes. we computed these elementary modes using the metatool program (von kamp and schuster, ), which has been integrated within the yana software package (schwarz et al., ). further analysis of the calculated pathways (i.e., all elementary modes) […]

[…] stimulation) using facial descriptors extracted out of existing observational pain assessment scales. this extraction has led to the development of the pain assessment in impaired cognition (paic) metatool [] as part of a european funded cost action (td1005) and we used all facial items of this paic tool (see ). all facial expressions were rated by an independent rater, trained […]
