Abstract

Respiration-driven H translocation has been examined in an (‘energy uncoupled phenotype’) mutant of and compared with that observed in its otherwise isogenic wildtype parent. Respiration-driven H translocation was unimpaired in the mutant strain. It appears that the role of the gene product lies in the utilization of energized protons pumped across the cytoplasmic membrane.
