A metabolic network of a phosphate-accumulating organism provides new insights into enhanced biological phosphorous removal
Artikel i vetenskaplig tidskrift, 2011

Here we present a metabolic network representing the central carbon metabolism as well as the synthesis of polyhydroxyalcanohates and the polyphosphate accumulation mechanisms of the bacterium Candidatus Accumulibacter phosphatis, which was previously identified from metagenomic studies in enhanced biological phosphorous removal sludges. The reconstructed metabolic network, together with flux balance analysis can be used to provide new insights into controversial aspects of the metabolism of phosphate-accumulating organisms and is also a tool that can be used in to help enhanced biological phosphorous removal (EBPR) process design and operation.
