  • Pareurythoe californica is capable of simultaneous net uptake of 18 amino acids, each present at an initial concentration of 200 nM. Rates of uptake are comparable for all amino acids tested. Kinetics of uptake are well described by the Michaelis-Menten equation. Neither bacteria nor other epifauna play a significant role in the observed uptake. The net entry of the amino acids tested was inhibited in the presence of equimolar concentrations of representatives of all major classes of amino… CONTINUE READING
