Title
The relationships between the metabolic fluxes and 13C-labeled isotopomer distribution for the flux analysis of the main metabolic pathways
Abstract

It has been known that 13C-labeling technique is quite useful in estimating the metabolic fluxes. Although the program-based flux analysis is powerful, it is not easy to be confident with the result obtained without experiences and exhaustive trial and errors based on statistical analysis for the confidence intervals in practice. It is, therefore, quite important to grasp the relationship between the fluxes and the 13C-labeled isotopomer distribution to get deeper insight into the metabolic flux analysis. In the present research, it was shown explicitly how the isotopomer distribution changes with respect to the fluxes in relation to the labeling patterns of the substrate, where either labeled glucose, acetate, or pyruvate was used as a carbon source. Some of the analytical expressions were derived based on the matrix representation, and they were utilized for analysis. It was shown that the isotopomer pattern does not necessarily change uniformly with respect to fluxes, but changes in a complicated way in particular for the case of using pyruvate as a carbon source where some isotopomers do not necessarily change monotonically. It was shown to be quite important to grasp how the isotopomer pattern changes with respect to fluxes and the labeling pattern of the substrate for flux determination and the experimental design. It was also shown that the mixture of [1-13C] acetate and [2-13C] acetate should not be used from the information index point of view. Some of the experimental data were evaluated from the present approach. It was also shown that the isotopomer distribution is less sensitive to the bidirectional fluxes in the reversible pathway.
