A new type of solute importer has been identified recently in various bacterial genera and called the tripartite tricarboxylate transporter (TTT). TTTs consist of two cytoplasmic membrane proteins and a periplasmic solute-binding protein. In the whooping cough agent Bordetella pertussis, a TTT system that has been called BctCBA mediates the uptake of citrate, with BctA and BctB being the membrane components and BctC, the periplasmic protein. Here, we describe that the expression of the bctCBA… CONTINUE READING
