Method Abstract: "The unknown ATP stoichiometry parameters of the constructed E. coli network were estimated from experimental data of eight different aerobic chemostat experiments carried out with E. coli MG1655, grown at different dilution rates (0.025, 0.05, 0.1, and 0.3 h^(-1)) and on different carbon substrates (glucose, glycerol, and acetate)."
Comments P.376 left column: "Table VI shows the obtained macromolecular and corresponding elemental biomass compositions for specific growth rates between 0.025 and 0.3 h^-1. These compositions have subsequently been used in the data reconciliation and parameter estimation procedure using the minimal metabolic network models described above. It should be noted that the γx [degree of reduction of biomass] of 4.12 calculated from the biomass composition published by Neidhardt falls well within the obtained trend of the decreasing γx at increasing growth rate (see Table VI)."
