Abstract

Metabolism is a highly complex biochemical network whose functions are tightly coordinated and regulated by feedback mechanisms to meet the physiological demands of living organisms. One approach to understanding those complex metabolic reactions is to use mathematical methods and computational tools to model, simulate and analyze each metabolic network. Unfortunately, most publications on modeling present only the final products without describing the details as to how they were developed and tested. In this paper, we use Petri nets as a modeling tool to model, simulate and analyze the process of carbohydrate metabolism, and in particular, the Krebs cycle. This paper will show both the compact model (which presents only the final product) and detailed model of Krebs cycle.
