Nitrate and nitrite transport in bacteria

  title={Nitrate and nitrite transport in bacteria},

  journal={Cellular and Molecular Life Sciences CMLS},
The topological arrangements of nitrate and nitrite reductases in bacteria necessitate the synthesis of transporter proteins that carry the nitrogen oxyanions across the cytoplasmic membrane. For assimilation of nitrate (and nitrite) there are two types of uptake system known: ABC transporters that are driven by ATP hydrolysis, and secondary transporters reliant on a proton motive force. Proteins homologous to the latter type of transporter are also involved in nitrate and nitrite transport in… CONTINUE READING
