Ion Transport in Prokaryotes provides an advance treatise on ion transport and prokaryotic organisms. This book is divided into three main topics—cation transport systems, anion transport systems, and plasmid-encoded transport systems. This compilation specifically discusses the proton transport and proton-motive force in prokaryotic cells, potassium transport in bacteria, and bioenergetic functions of sodium ions. The calcium transport in prokaryotes, phosphate transport in prokaryotes, and transport of organic acids in prokaryotes are also elaborated. This text likewise covers the chloride, nitrate, and sulfate transport in bacteria and bacterial magnesium, manganese, and zinc transport. This publication is recommended for biologists, specialists, and students interested in the bacterial ion transport system.
