L-Glutamate transport by the H(+)-glutamate and Na(+)-glutamate symport proteins of Escherichia coli K-12 (GltPEc and GltSEc, respectively) and the Na(+)-H(+)-glutamate symport proteins of Bacillus stearothermophilus (GltTBs) and Bacillus caldotenax (GltTBc) was studied in membrane vesicles derived from cells in which the proteins were either homologously or heterologously expressed. Substrate and inhibitor specificity studies indicate that GltPEc, GltTBs and GltTBc fall into the same group of… CONTINUE READING
