__init__(id=None, name=None)[source]

__getstate__()[source]

Remove the references to container reactions when serializing to avoid problems associated with recursion.

When copying a reaction, it is necessary to deepcopy the components so the list references aren’t carried over.

Additionally, a copy of a reaction is no longer in a cobra.Model.

This should be fixed with self.__deepcopy__ if possible
