Metabolic Flux: Tracking Pathways in Action
Metabolic flux is the transformation of a metabolite through a pathway. Tracking pathways in action is possible with stable isotope labeling experiments. Metabolic fluxes correlate to regulation at the transcriptional, translational, post-translational and protein-metabolite interaction level. Fluxes are dysregulated in disease states, so understanding them provides actionable insights into pathogenesis and treatment development.
