Involvement of a d-type oxidase in the Na(+)-motive respiratory chain of Escherichia coli growing under low delta mu H+ conditions.

Abstract

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… (More)
