  • a Average values of three independent experiments; carbon and redox balances were 95% ± 2% and 98% ± 3%, respectively. Data from individual experiments do not differ by more than 15%.

  • b Data from Neves et al. (30).

  • c Values of a representative experiment. Carbon and redox balances were 98 and 96%, respectively.

  • d Values of a representative experiment. Carbon and redox balances were 98 and 96%, respectively.
