Mechanistic Insight into Trimethylamine N-Oxide Recognition by the Marine Bacterium Ruegeria pomeroyi DSS-3.

Abstract

UNLABELLED Trimethylamine N-oxide (TMAO) is an important nitrogen source for marine bacteria. TMAO can also be metabolized by marine bacteria into volatile methylated amines, the precursors of the greenhouse gas nitrous oxide. However, it was not known how TMAO is recognized and imported by bacteria. Ruegeria pomeroyi DSS-3, a marine Roseobacter, has an ATP… (More)
