    ..We conclude that the NAGS/NAGK metabolon promotes the co-ordination of the catalytic activities and feedback regulation of the first two, flux controlling, enzymes of the arginine pathway. ..

    ..We show that high dosage of Pth4 can compensate for the absence of Mrf1 and loss of Pth4 exacerbates the lack of Mrf1. Also Pth4 is a component of the mitochondrial ribosome, suggesting that it could help recycling stalled ribosomes. ..
