Contributions of five secondary metal uptake systems to metal homeostasis of Cupriavidus metallidurans CH34.


Cupriavidus metallidurans is adapted to high concentrations of transition metal cations and is a model system for studying metal homeostasis in difficult environments. The elemental composition of C. metallidurans cells cultivated under various conditions was determined, revealing the ability of the bacterium to shield homeostasis of one essential metal… (More)
