During fermentation in Escherichia coli succinate is transported via Dcu transporters, encoded dcuA, dcuB, dcuC and dcuD although the role of DcuD protein has not been elucidated yet. It has been shown contribution of Dcu transporters in the N,N'-dicyclohexylcarbodiimide (DCCD) sensitive proton and potassium transport through the cytoplasmic membrane and membrane-associated ATPase activity. Total H efflux was decreased ~ 40% while K uptake was absent in dcuD mutant. Read More
