Biochemical evidence against protein-mediated uptake of myristic acid in the bioluminescent marine bacterium Vibrio harveyi.


The bioluminescent marine bacterium, Vibrio harveyi, can utilize exogenous myristic acid (14:0) for beta-oxidation, phospholipid and lipid A synthesis, and as an source of myristyl aldehyde for light emission in the V. harveyi dark mutant M17. A variety of genetic and biochemical strategies were employed in an attempt to isolate V. harveyi mutants defective… (More)
