Molecular insights into the regulation of glutamine transport across cellular membranes

Balkrishna, Sarojini


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]
