Figure 1

Simplified model for the central metabolic network of E. coli metabolism. The enzymes involved (and their codifying genes) are shown in the figure, ACEK (aceK), isocitrate dehydrogenase phosphatase/kinase; ACK (ackA), acetate kinase; ACS (acs), acetyl-CoA synthetase; ICDH (icd), isocitrate dehydrogenase; ICL (aceA), isocitrate lyase; ICLR (iclR), repressor of the glyoxylate shunt; MDH (maeB), malate dehydrogenase; ME (sfcA), malic enzyme, PFL (pfl) pyruvate:formate lyase; PTA (pta), phosphotransacetylase (Ecocyc-Metacyc [45]).
