Abstract

In the context of the study into elementary modes of metabolic networks, we prove two complexity results. Enumerating elementary modes containing a specific reaction is hard in an enumeration complexity sense. The decision problem if there exists an elementary mode containing two specific reactions is NP-complete. The complexity of enumerating all elementary modes remains open. © 2009 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.
