Abstract: The recognition of changes in environmental conditions, and the ability to adapt to these changes, is essential for the viability of cells. There are numerous well-characterized systems by which the presence or absence of an individual metabolite can be recognized by a cell. The recognition of a metabolite is, however, just one step of a process that often results in changes in the expression of sets of genes required to respond to that metabolite. The signalling pathway between metabolite recognition and transcriptional control is often complex. However, recent evidence from yeast suggests that complex signalling pathways might be circumvented via the direct interaction between individual metabolites and regulators of RNA polymerase II transcription.
