Transport of long and medium chain fatty acids by Escherichia coli K12.

Abstract

Kinetic, metabolic, and physical parameters of long and medium chain fatty acid transport by Escherichia coli K12 were determined. Uptake of long chain fatty acids (C11-C18:1) mediated by the fadL gene involves concentrative transport. Evidence for this is as follows: (i) characteristic Ki and Vmax values were obtained for long chain fatty acids, (ii) long… (More)
