AIMS To identify and characterize amino acid transport in Leuconostoc mesenteroides. METHODS AND RESULTS The transport of labelled amino acids was measured in whole cells of Leuc. mesenteroides CNRZ 1273. Systems were operative under physiological conditions of growth, energy dependent and differed from peptide transport. Some of the systems were shared by several amino acids. Kinetic analysis indicated the presence of three transport systems with very high (VH), high (H) and low affinity (H… CONTINUE READING
