The soil bacterium B. subtilis is exposed to frequently changing environmental conditions. Moreover, in its natural habitat, B. subtilis is surrounded by numerous microorganisms that are competing for the available resources. Therefore, the survival strategy of B. subtilis is optimized towards a rapid utilization of the available nutrients. The uptake of glucose, which is the preferred carbon source of B. subtilis, is mediated by the phosphoenolpyruvate:phosphotransferase system (PTS) encoded… CONTINUE READING
