Submerged growth of Trichoderma atroviride CCM F 534 on glucose-containing medium was accompanied by the excretion of organic acids (succinate, citrate, alpha-ketoglutarate, fumarate, aconitate). The excretion of succinate was transient. After 48-72 h cultivation, millimolar amounts of succinate disappeared from the medium. We studied the mechanism of the removal of succinate from the medium and demonstrated the activation of the inward transport of succinate by submerged mycelia. This transport was carrier-mediated, had a low solute specificity, and was driven by proton-motive force. The last aspect was provided by the activation of the H(+)-ATPase, as documented by measurements of ATPase activity and expression of the pma gene. The disruption of the pma gene abolished the capacity of the mycelia to re-uptake succinate but not its production. Results show that excreted carboxylates could serve as alternative nutrients in the late phase(s) of submerged growth, explain why inward transport system(s) for carboxylates are induced, and indicate that the inward-directed transport could interfere with the production of carboxylic acids by fungi.
