Repression of Escherichia coli pyridine nucleotide transhydrogenase by leucine.


Addition of 0.1% casein hydrolysate to a minimal growth medium decreased membrane-bound transhydrogenase activity in Escherichia coli by about 80%. Of the amino acids added individually to the growth medium, only leucine and, to a lesser extent, methionine and alanine were effective, alpha-Ketoisocaproate- and leucine-containing peptides repressed the… (More)
