Metabolic control analysis (MCA) is a mathematical framework for describing and investigating the control of metabolic, signaling and genetic pathways including biochemical fluxes and their distribution among different enzymes. By analysing the influence of a fractional change in the activity of involved enzymes on the flux of the whole system it is a special application of sensitivity analysis.

Metabolic control analysis shares some concepts with metabolic flux analysis.
