The solution of Flux Balance Analysis (FBA) represents metabolic flux distribution in ZucAt model under light growth conditions. In this solution, (i) the ratio photorespiration / photosynthesis has been fixed to 0.25; (ii) and ATP transport between plastid and cytoplasm has been set to 0. The last constraint allows finding the ratio between fluxes through FQR (ferredoxin-plastoquinone reductase) and FRN (ferredoxin-NADP oxidoreductase) under which the ATP balance in plastid becomes self-sufficient (due to cyclic electron flux through FQR), correspondingly plastid neither imports nor exports ATP to/from cytoplasm. Flux through FQR represents cyclic electron flow through the light photosynthesis system. Flux through FRN represents non-cyclic electron flow through the light photosynthesis system.
