  • An attempt has been made to find out which of the two terminal oxidases, the d-type or the o-type, operates as a Na+ pump in Escherichia coli grown at low delta mu H+ conditions. For this purpose, mutants lacking either d or o oxidase have been studied. It is shown that a d-,o+ mutant grows slowly or does not grow at all under low delta mu H+ conditions (alkaline or protonophore-containing growth media were used). Inside-out subcellular vesicles from the d-,o+ mutant cannot oxidize ascorbate… CONTINUE READING
