Changes in the membrane potential, pH gradient, proton motive force, and intracellular pH of Escherichia coli were followed during the chemotactic responses to a variety of potentially membrane-active compounds. Lipophilic weak acids, decreases in extracellular pH, and nigericin each caused a repellent response. Lipophilic weak bases, increases in extracellular pH, and valinomycin in the presence of K+ each caused an attractant response. Changes in membrane potential, pH gradient, and proton… CONTINUE READING
