    We have previously proposed that a single translation product of the FUM1 gene encoding fumarase is distributed between the cytosol and mitochondria of Saccharomyces cerevisiae and that all fumarase translation products are targeted and ..

    ..Specifically, we suggest that metabolites of the glyoxylate shunt act as 'nanosensors' for fumarase subcellular targeting and distribution. The possible mechanisms involved are discussed. ..
