Glutathione transport is more efficient than cysteine transport (Pittmann, 2005). Exogenous glutathione or cysteine rescues the swarming motility defect and benzylpenicillin hypersensitivity of cydDC mutants (Pittmann, 2002; 2005). Translation start site verified by start codon mutagenesis (Cruz-Ramos, 2004).
