Abstract

The locus of encodes an osmotically induced betaine transport system. We have identified a 31 kDa periplasmic protein, encoded by , whose synthesis is induced by osmotic stress. A specific betaine-binding activity with a of about 1 μm is also present in the periplasm of osmotically induced cells. This activity is absent in those mutants which lack the 31 kDa periplasmic protein. Thus, ProU is a periplasmic binding-protein-dependent transport system.
