Metabolic flux repartition. Metabolic flux repartition within the central carbon metabolism for the S. cerevisiae CEN.PK 113-7D wild type and the two strains engineered for reduced GPDH activity. Metabolic fluxes were calculated as mmol gDCW-1 h-1 from experimental data obtained at μmax and then normalized to a biomass production rate of 1 g g-1 h-1 (WT/TEFmut7/TEFmut2). TCA cycle fluxes were found highly sensitive to low variation of qetoh/μ ratio and therefore should be taken with caution.
