The uptake of tritiated nikkomycin Z, a potent inhibitor of chitin synthetase, is mediated by a peptide transport system in Candida albicans. Kinetic transport assays with radioactive di- and tripeptides and competition studies suggest that two distinct systems operate in this yeast. Nikkomycin Z was transported through one of these systems, common to di… CONTINUE READING
