ACoM: A classification method for elementary flux modes based on motif finding

Abstract : Elementary flux mode analysis is a powerful tool for the theoretical study of metabolic networks. However, when the networks are complex, the determination of elementary flux modes leads to combinatorial explosion of their number which prevents from drawing simple conclusions from their analysis. To deal with this problem we have developed a method based on the Agglomeration of Common Motifs (ACoM) for classifying elementary flux modes. We applied this algorithm to describe the decomposition into elementary flux modes of the central carbon metabolism in Bacillus subtilis and of the yeast mitochondrial energy metabolism. ACoM helps to give biological meaning to the different elementary flux modes and to the relatedness between reactions. ACoM, which can be viewed as a bi-clustering method, can be of general use for sets of vectors with values 0, +1 or −1.
