||"G. metallireducens dcuB strain was grown in batch
using acetate/fumarate medium and also in a chemostat at a set
growth rate (Table 3). The growth rate determined in this study
was similar to that previously reported (0.114/hr vs 0.105/hr,
respectively) . From these two conditions, it was possible to
estimate the maintenance costs (GAM and NGAM) for the model
using an established procedure [9,18]. The calculated costs were
79.20 mmol ATP/gDW for the GAM and 0.81 mmol ATP/(gDW×hr) for the NGAM."
||"These values are similar to those
found previously for G. sulfurreducens , thus it provided
confidence in the use of the GAM and NGAM throughout the
study. The additional content included in the ETS [electron transport system] was further
analyzed using experimental data."
