The ability of Rickettsia prowazekii to transport potential sources of the glucose moiety of bacterial polysaccharides was determined. Transport was determined both by filtration assays and by centrifugation through nonaqueous layers. Uridine 5'-diphosphoglucose (UDPG) was transported, whereas glucose was not transported; the uptake of glucose phosphates, although greater than that for glucose, was markedly lower than the transport of UDPG. Furthermore, the activities of hexokinase and… CONTINUE READING
