STUDIES ON UPTAKE OF FATTY ACIDS INTO MYCOBACTERIAL CELLS (2) FURTHER STUDIES ON THE UPTAKE OF ACETATE INTO MYCOBACTERIUM SMEGMATIS

Based upon further investigations on the uptake of acetate into Mycobacterium smegmatis, especially using its membrane preparation, ghosts, a non-passive transport of acetate involving adenosine triphosphate (ATP) as a stimulator was elucidated. Uridine triphosphate (UTP) was found to be also stimulative as ATP to the uptake of acetate in the ghosts. The mechanism of these stimulations of ATP as well as UTP to the uptake of acetate is still equivocal at present.
