The Gram-positive bacterium Bacillus subtilis has a complete set of enzymes for the tricarboxylic acid (TCA) cycle and can grow aerobically using most of the TCA cycle intermediates (malate, fumarate, succinate and citrate) as a sole carbon source. The B. subtilis genome sequence contains three paralogous two-component regulatory systems, CitST, DctSR and YufLM. CitST and DctSR activate the expression of a transporter of the Mg(2+)-citrate complex (CitM) and a fumarate and succinate transporter… CONTINUE READING
