Abstract

This paper presents a qualitative logic-based method for the steady-state analysis and revision of metabolic networks with inhibition. The approach is able to automatically revise an initial metabolic model a?? through the addition and removal of whole reactions or individual substrates, products and inhibitors a?? in order to ensure the existence of a steady-state behaviour consistent with a set of experimental observations. We show how this can be done in a nonmonotonic logic programming setting and discuss the challenges that arise when metabolic cycles or mutual inhibitions occur in the underlying network.
