Free-living bacteria are expert in adapting to variations in nutrient availability, often using an array of transport systems of different affinities to scavenge for particular substrates (multiport). This review concentrates on the regulation of expression of different transporters contributing to multiport in response to varying nutrient levels. A novel mechanism of controlling bacterial transport affinity under sugar limitation is described. In particular, switching from glucose-rich to… CONTINUE READING
