Glutamine is the most abundant amino acid in the body. As the primary nitrogen carrier between cells, it plays essential roles in inter-organ nutrition and cellular homeostasis. The transport of glutamine across cellular membranes is facilitated by membrane transporters of the Solute-Linked Carrier (SLC) families. SLC38 is one such family, whose members encode SNAT proteins (Sodium-Neutral Amino acid Transporter or System N/A Transporter), which together transport a broad range of neutral...[Show more]
