Abstract

The sporulation-deficient industrial organism Bacillus licheniformis HWL10 possesses two distinct glucose transport systems in log-phase cells, a glucose phosphotransferase system (PTS) and a non-PTS mechanism. The strain continues to take up glucose at a significant though reduced rate during prolonged stationary-phase incubation, but only the PTS is active.
