Abstract

Transport of nutrients (glutamate, glucose and acetate) into membrane vesicles of sp. A-007 was specifically dependent on the Na gradient (outside high). The nutrients were co-transported with Na, the process being stimulated by alkaline pH. In addition to the transport process, binding of glutamate to membrane vesicles was also pH- and Na-dependent.
