Cells use various metabolic pathways to synthesize the building blocks for growth and proliferation. To ensure balanced growth, these biosynthetic processes must be tightly coordinated. In contrast, dysregulation of these cellular pathways is tightly linked to human diseases and ageing. Our work describes a molecular machinery that senses the cellular capacity to make lipids to then regulate other biosynthetic processes, like protein synthesis, accordingly.
