Presentation of relevant metabolic features and amino acid utilization. (A) Genome-based model of amino acid metabolism and energy conservation processes of C. sticklandii. (B) LC-MS analyses of amino acid utilization. The presence of each amino acid in the medium was checked at different phases of growth (colour graphs). The growth kinetic is represented by a yellow graph. Only the curves for rapidly used amino acids are shown.
