This study describes the characterization of the riboflavin transport protein RibU in the lactic acid bacterium Lactococcus lactis subsp. cremoris NZ9000. RibU is predicted to contain five membrane-spanning segments and is a member of a novel transport protein family, not described in the Transport Classification Database. Transcriptional analysis revealed that ribU transcription is downregulated in response to riboflavin and flavin mononucleotide (FMN), presumably by means of the structurally… CONTINUE READING
