Na+-dependent and Na+-independent mechanisms for inorganic phosphate uptake in Trypanosoma rangeli.

Abstract

BACKGROUND Trypanosoma rangeli is dependent on the presence of exogenous orthophosphate (Pi) for maximal growth and ecto-phosphatase activity is responsible for Pi supply under low Pi. Here we investigated the mechanisms of Pi uptake. METHODS We investigated the kinetics of 32Pi transport, its Na+ and H+ dependence, its correlation with the Na+-ATPase and… (More)
