Abstract A technique, which by first depleting the cellular freely extractable amino acids of Streptococcus faecium rendered subsequent amino acid uptake readily demonstrable, was used to prepare cell suspensions with which the uptake of seven amino acid species was studied. All the amino acids studied, except arginine, required glucose for uptake (including lysine, contrary to previous reports). D -Amino acids were taken up with the same facility as their L -isomers. Uptake of exogenous amino… CONTINUE READING
