Unravelling the various steps in a metabolic pathway is a challenging task. The partitioning of metabolites and enzymes between different cellular compartments, such as mitochondria, plastids, vacuoles and endoplasmic reticulum, in eukaryotic cells, adds an additional level of complexity to the work. The use of mutants, and more recently also transgenic organisms, is often a very powerful approach to establish the correlation between a genetic locus and a metabolic activity and to elucidate the sequential steps in a metabolic pathway.
