Table 3 Glycogen content of the wild type and the double knockout strain under glucose abundant (batch) and glucose limiting (chemostat) conditions.

From: Effect of iclR and arcA knockouts on biomass formation and metabolic fluxes in Escherichia coli K12 and its implications on understanding the metabolism of Escherichia coliBL21 (DE3)

Strain Batch Chemostat
MG1655 0.25 ± 0.26 0.50 ± 0.24
MG1655 ΔarcAΔiclR 1.47 ± 0.19 1.29 ± 0.16
  1. Values are expressed as carbon relative to the total amount of biomass carbon. The results shown are the averages of two cultures, measured 4 times. The wild type chemostat culture had a dilution rate of 0.17 ± 0.01 h-1; the ΔarcAΔiclR strain had a dilution rate of 0.33 ± 0.02 h-1. The carbon balance and redox balance for these experiments are similar to the data shown in Additional file 1
