Evidence for a role of a vicinal dithiol in the transport of gamma-butyrobetaine in Agrobacterium sp.


An Agrobacterium sp. isolated from soil is able to use gamma-butyrobetaine as its sole source of carbon and nitrogen. The involvement of thiol groups for active transport of gamma-butyrobetaine was investigated by use of the thiol alkylating reagent N-ethylmaleimide (NEM) and the dithiol specific reagent phenylarsine oxide (PAO). Both reagents strongly… (More)
