Sulfate permeasesphylogenetic diversity of sulfate transport.

Sulfate uptake, the first step of sulfate assimilation in all organisms, is a highly endoergic, ATP requiring process. It is under tight control at the transcriptional level and is additionally modulated by posttranslational modifications, which are not yet fully characterized. Sulfate anion is taken up into the cell by specific transporters, named sulfate… CONTINUE READING
