Coupling of glycine and alanine transport to respiration in cells of Escherichia coli.

Energy coupling for uptake of glycine and alanine in glycerol grown cells of Escherichia coli differs from that of the aromatic amino acids. Respiration and uptake of glycine and alanine show similar inactivations in cells exposed to high intensity violet light or to various concentrations of cyanide. In contrast,uptake of phenylalanine, tyrosine, and… CONTINUE READING
