CO2 production rate calculated by model

Value 2064 nmol CO2/h/embryo Range: ±53 nmol CO2/h/embryo
Organism Sunflower Helianthus annuus
Reference Alonso AP, Goffman FD, Ohlrogge JB, Shachar-Hill Y. Carbon conversion efficiency and central metabolic fluxes in developing sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.) embryos. Plant J. 2007 Oct52(2):296-308 p.300 left columnPubMed ID17683473
Method "The metabolic network was defined from information available in the literature on sunflower embryos (Hewezi et al., 2006 Pleite et al., 2005) and other heterotrophic plant tissues (Dieuaide-Noubhani et al., 1995 Rontein et al., 2002) and from the labeling data."
Comments "The model calculates a CO2 production rate of 2064±53 nmol CO2/h/embryo, which is close to the CO2 production directly measured by gas analysis (1705±221 nmolCO2/h/embryo)."
