Transport of C(4)-dicarboxylates in Wolinella succinogenes.

C(4)-dicarboxylate transport is a prerequisite for anaerobic respiration with fumarate in Wolinella succinogenes, since the substrate site of fumarate reductase is oriented towards the cytoplasmic side of the membrane. W. succinogenes was found to transport C(4)-dicarboxylates (fumarate, succinate, malate, and aspartate) across the cytoplasmic membrane by… CONTINUE READING
