Abstract

The major facilitator superfamily (MFS) of transport proteins, which includes the lactose permease of Escherichia coli, contains a conserved motif G-X-X-X-D/E-R/K-X-G-R/K-R/K in the loops that connect transmembrane segments 2 and 3, and transmembrane segments 8 and 9. In three previous studies (Jessen-Marshall, A.E., & Brooker, R.J. 1996. J. Biol. Chem. 271:1400–1404; Jessen-Marshall, A.E., Parker, N., & Brooker, R.J. 1997. J. Bacteriol. 179:2616–2622; and Pazdernik, N., Cain, S.M., & Brooker, R.J. 1997. J. Biol. Chem. 272:26110–26116), suppressor mutations at twenty different sites were identified which restore function to mutant permeases that have deleterious mutations in the conserved loop 2/3 or loop 8/9 motif. In the current study, several of these second-site suppressor mutations have been separated from the original mutation in the conserved motif. The loop 2/3 suppressors were then coupled to a loop 8/9 mutation (P280L) and the loop 8/9 suppressors were coupled to a loop 2/3 mutation (i.e., G64S) to determine if the suppressors could restore function only to a loop 2/3 mutation, a loop 8/9 mutation, or both.
