Binding and transport of thiamine by Lactobacillus casei.

Abstract

The relationship between thiamine transport and a membrane-associated thiamine-binding activity has been investigated in Lactobacillus casei. Thiamine transport proceeds via a system whose general properties are typical of active uptake processes; entry of the vitamin into the cells requires energy, is temperature dependent, exhibits saturation kinetics… (More)
