The sign of the stoichiometric number, νX, is determined by the direction of the transformation (positive for products, negative for substrates), and the magnitude of νX is determined by the stoichiometric form. For instance, νA=-1 in the reaction 0 = -1 A + 2 B (-1 glucose converted to +2 lactate), but νA=-1/6 in the reaction 0 = -1/6 A - 1 B + 1 C (-1/6 glucose and -1 O2 converted to +1 H2CO3).
