Table 3 Glycolytic metabolons in hyperstructures. PEP production after 10 s when the EIIBC enzymes are in a patch and i/when the glycolytic enzymes diffuse freely or ii/when these enzymes are assembled into 60 glycolytic metabolons in a hyperstructure with or without channeling (a single enzyme space was left between the patch of EIIBC enzymes that import and phosphorylate glucose and the glycolytic hyperstructure).

From: A stochastic automaton shows how enzyme assemblies may contribute to metabolic efficiency

Glucose per sec. 0.1 1 10
Free enzymes 16 216 2131
Hyperstructure no channeling 25 253 2178
