Washed cells of Agrobacterium radiobacter prepared from a fructose-limited continuous culture (D 0.045 h-1) transported D(-)[U-14C]fructose in a linear manner for up to 4 min at a rate several-fold higher than the rate of fructose utilization by the growing culture. D(-)[U-14C]Fructose transport exhibited a high affinity for fructose (KT < 1 microM) and was… CONTINUE READING
