  1. Error in enzyme name

    I have just noticed that we, somehow, had the wrong enzyme name for EC: in subsection "Methionine and cysteine" of "Results and discussion". The correct name, as present everywhere else in the paper, is "homoserine dehydrogenase" (and not "homocysteine methytransferase" as written). Not sure how that one slipped past us, since an EC number starting with 1 could never be a methyltransferase...

    Sorry for any inconvenience this switch might have caused.
