Highly purified [D-glucose-1-14C]lactose has been used to study the transport of lactose by Klebsiella sp. strain CT-1. Strain CT-1 transports lactose by a lactose-inducible system that exhibited an apparent Km of 6 mM lactose and an apparent Vmax of 140 nmol/min per mg of cell protein. Lactose uptake was inhibited competitively by o-nitrophenyl-beta-D… CONTINUE READING
