Abstract: Metabolons are transient multi-protein complexes of sequential enzymes that mediate substrate channeling. They differ from multi-enzyme complexes in that they are dynamic, rather than permanent, and as such have considerably lower dissociation constants. Despite the fact that a huge number of metabolons have been suggested to exist in plants, most of these claims are erroneous as only a handful of these have been proven to channel metabolites. We believe that physical protein–protein interactions between conse…
