corresponding target function [μM·h−1]
Normal nerve cell minApo, maxApo, minDeg, maxDeg -
O2 minApo, maxDeg 0-100
ATP minApo, maxDeg 0-1000
Drug influence (MPTP) minApo, maxDeg 0-100

Six experiments were performed. For each experiment, at least two different FBAs were performed with different target functions and variable flux ranges that are denoted in the last table column. Abbreviations: minimizing the output-reaction of the apoptosis (minApo), maximizing the output-reaction of the apoptosis (maxApo), minimizing the output-reaction of the degradation (minDeg), maximizing the output-reaction of the degradation (maxDeg), 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP).
