Pichia sorbitophila is a halotolerant yeast capable of surviving to extracellular NaCl concentrations up to 4 M in mineral medium when glucose or glycerol are the only carbon and energy sources. Evidence is presented here that glycerol, the main compatible solute this yeast accumulates so as to maintain osmotic balance, is actively co-transported with protons. This transport system was shown to be constitutive, not needing induction by either glycerol or salt, and was not repressible by glucose… CONTINUE READING
