BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The neutral amino acid transporter B(0) AT1 (SLC6A19) has recently been identified as a possible target to treat type 2 diabetes and related disorders. B(0) AT1 mediates the Na(+) -dependent uptake of all neutral amino acids. For surface expression and catalytic activity, B(0) AT1 requires coexpression of collectrin (TMEM27). In this study, we established tools to identify and evaluate novel inhibitors of B(0) AT1. EXPERIMENTAL APPROACH A CHO-based cell line was...[Show more]
