Gnaiger 2020 BEC MitoPathways Internal normalization of rate – what is the difference between flux control ratio and flux control efficiency?

A flux control ratio is the ratio of oxygen flux in a specific respiratory control state, normalized for maximum flux in a common reference state. Flux control efficiency expresses the control of respiration as a fractional change of oxygen flux or flow between protocol steps. Both values vary between theoretical lower and upper limits of 0 and 1.

Respiratory OXPHOS capacity P in human skeletal muscle ranges from 60 to 160 pmol∙s­-1∙mg­-1 based on wet muscle mass of permeabilized fibers. By comparison, mass-specific electron transfer capacity E is approximately 25 pmol∙s-1∙mg-1 in platelets and senescent fibroblasts and 40 to 80 pmol∙s-1∙mg-1 in PBMC, HEK, CEM, HUVEC, and young fibroblasts. ― Are these values comparable? - »Gnaiger 2020 BEC MitoPathways«.
