Physiology and pathology of neutral amino acid transport in renal and intestinal epithelial cells

Tietze, Nadine


About 95% of nutrient protein is absorbed in the mammalian intestine as amino acids and trl-and dipeptides. Once absorbed by the intestine amino acids are distributed by the circulation throughout the body. In the kidney an ultrafiltrate of the blood plasma is generated from which all amino acids are reabsorbed in the proximal tubule. System B{u2070} is the main amino acid transport system in these two tissues for broad neutral amino acids. Four transporters B{u2070}AT1 (SLC6A19), B{u2070}AT2...[Show more]
