  • Analysis of the genome of Geobacter sulfurreducens revealed four genes encoding putative symporters with homology to ActP, an acetate transporter in Escherichia coli. Three of these genes, aplA, aplB and aplC, are highly similar (over 90 % identical) and fell within a tight phylogenetic cluster (Group I) consisting entirely of Geobacter homologues. Transcript levels for all three genes increased in response to acetate limitation. The fourth gene, aplD, is phylogenetically distinct (Group II… CONTINUE READING
