Lee2008 - Genome-scale metabolic network of Clostridium acetobutylicum (iJL432)

ABSTRACT: Lee2008 - Genome-scale metabolic network of Clostridium acetobutylicum (iJL432) This model is described in the article: Genome-scale reconstruction and in silico analysis of the Clostridium acetobutylicum ATCC 824 metabolic network. Lee J, Yun H, Feist AM, Palsson BØ, Lee SY. Appl. Microbiol. Biotechnol. 2008 Oct; 80(5): 849-862 Abstract: To understand the metabolic characteristics of Clostridium acetobutylicum and to examine the potential for enhanced butanol production, we reconstructed the genome-scale metabolic network from its annotated genomic sequence and analyzed strategies to improve its butanol production. The generated reconstructed network consists of 502 reactions and 479 metabolites and was used as the basis for an in silico model that could compute metabolic and growth performance for comparison with fermentation data. The in silico model successfully predicted metabolic fluxes during the acidogenic phase using classical flux balance analysis. Nonlinear programming was used to predict metabolic fluxes during the solventogenic phase. In addition, essential genes were predicted via single gene deletion studies. This genome-scale in silico metabolic model of C. acetobutylicum should be useful for genome-wide metabolic analysis as well as strain development for improving production of biochemicals, including butanol.
