The double mutant of the lactose permease containing Val177/Asn319 exhibits proton leakiness by two pathways (see Brooker, R. J. (1991) J. Biol Chem. 266, 4131-4138). One type of H+ leakiness involves the uncoupled influx of H+ (leak A pathway) while a second type involves the coupled influx of H+ and galactosides in conjunction with uncoupled galactoside efflux (leak B pathway). In the current study, 14 independent lactose permease mutants were isolated from the Val177/Asn319 parent which were… CONTINUE READING
