    ..The inhibition is reversed by the presence of reducing agents. It is suggested that the physiological role of the system is a fumarate/succinate antiport under conditions of fumarate respiration. ..

    ..The efflux of succinate from de-energized membrane vesicles generated a delta psi of -70 mV. It is thus suggested that succinate efflux functions as a H+/succinate symport. ..

    ..Upon overexpression in a dcuC promoter mutant (dcuC*), DcuC was able to compensate for DcuA and DcuB in fumarate-succinate exchange and fumarate uptake. ..

    ..When two adjacent open reading frames (y0585 and y0586) from Haemophilus influenzae are fused, the resulting hypothetical protein has sequence similarity to DcuC and DcuD. ..

    ..In contrast, the efflux of succinate produced during glucose fermentation was not affected in the mutants, demonstrating that, for succinate efflux, a carrier different from, or in addition to, the known Dcu and CitT carriers is used. ..

    ..Modulating these two genes in combination led to 34% increase of succinate titer. To the best of knowledge, this was the first report about improving succinate production through engineering succinate efflux system. ..

    ..Mutants producing only DcuA, DcuB, or DcuC were prepared. In the mutants, DcuA, DcuB, and DcuC were each able to operate in the exchange and uptake mode. ..
