central metabolic intermediate

Abstract: How can a cell exert self-restraint and grow at an appropriate
rate when its metabolism involves an intermediate that pickles
biomolecules? In the methanol-oxidizing bacterium, Methylobacterium
extorquens, we have uncovered a formaldehyde stress response system that
senses the key intermediate of methylotrophy. I will present our
understanding about both the mechanism of this signaling system, as well
as the state of our knowledge as to why such a system is beneficial to the
