Ammonium/methylammonium permeases of a Cyanobacterium. Identification and analysis of three nitrogen-regulated amt genes in synechocystis sp. PCC 6803.

Abstract

Ammonium is an important nitrogen source for many microorganisms and plants. Ammonium transporters whose activity can be probed with [14C]methylammonium have been described in several organisms including some cyanobacteria, and amt genes encoding ammonium/methylammonium permeases have been recently identified in yeast, Arabidopsis thaliana, and some… (More)
