Abstract

<I>Bacillus subtilis</I> IolT is the major <I>myo</I>-inositol transporter for growth, while IolF is a minor one unable to support growth. We found that either IolT or IolF was sufficient for moderate growth using <small>D</small>-<I>chiro</I>-inositol. Conversely to IolT, IolF transported <small>D</small>-<I>chiro</I>-inositol more preferentially than <I>myo</I>-inositol. These results indicate that IolT and IolF are different in substrate specificity.
