Metabolic sensor in cells may react to nutritional environment available and decide on growth decision

In microbial ecology, experimental observations of fast-growing microbes able to grow on rich medium at the expense of slow-growing ones suggested that depletion of nutrients by fast-growers and subsequent domination of available agar surface may hamper the growth of slow-growing ones. However, why didn’t the slow-growing microbes also react to the high nutritional content of … More Metabolic sensor in cells may react to nutritional environment available and decide on growth decision

Lipid metabolism and its role in obesity and health
