Comments "[Researchers'] flux data show that wild-type cells converted a significant percentage of all metabolized substrates to CO2 (Table 3) and then refixed various amounts of this CO2 via the Calvin cycle (Table 3), allowing for oxidation of NADH by the Calvin cycle enzyme, glyceraldehyde 3-phosphate dehydrogenase (GAPDH)."
