Reference Williams TC, Poolman MG, Howden AJ, Schwarzlander M, Fell DA, Ratcliffe RG, Sweetlove LJ. A genome-scale metabolic model accurately predicts fluxes in central carbon metabolism under stress conditions. Plant Physiol. 2010 Sep154(1):311-23 p.319 right column 2nd paragraphPubMed ID20605915
Method "Carbon-use efficiency can be calculated from the Glc consumption rate and the fluxes through the CO2- evolving reactions estimated by MFA (mass flux analysis) or predicted by analysis of the genome-scale model."
Comments "Carbon-use efficiency was 58%±5% and 64%±9% for control and hyperosmotic stress, respectively, values that were comparable to previous estimates for the Arabidopsis cell suspension culture (Williams et al., 2008 Masakapalli et al., 2010), but only 21%±4% in cells cultured at elevated temperature."
