Our aim is to construct a practical dynamic-simulation system that can model the metabolic and regulatory processes involved in the production of primary metabolites, such as amino acids. We have simulated the production of glutamate by transient batch-cultivation using a model of Escherichia coli central metabolism. Kinetic data were used to produce both(More)
Metabolic flux analysis using (13)C-labeled substrates is a well-developed method for investigating cellular behavior in steady-state culture condition. To extend its application, in particular to typical industrial conditions, such as batch and fed-batch cultivations, a novel method of (13)C metabolic flux analysis is proposed. An isotopomer balancing(More)
A method for multielement analysis of micro-volume biological sample by inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (ICP-MS) with a highly efficient sample introduction system was presented. The sample introduction system was the combination of (1) an inert loop injection unit and (2) a high performance concentric nebulizer (HPCN) coupled with a(More)
We have developed a novel metal tag, bis(ethylenediamine)-4'-methyl-4-carboxybipyridine-ruthenium N-succinimidyl ester (ECRS) for sensitive analysis of amino acids using high performance liquid chromatography/inductively coupled plasma mass spectrometry (HPLC/ICP-MS). ECRS is a functional reagent, containing an ester group at one end that can be activated(More)
