The Na+-dependent transport of neutral amino acids in epithelial cells and neurons is mediated by B0-type neutral amino acid transporters. Two B0-type amino acid transporters have been identified in the neurotransmitter transporter family SLC6, namely B 0AT1 (SLC6A19) and B0AT2 (SLC6A15). In contrast to other members of this family, B0-like transporters are chloride- independent. B0AT1 and B0AT2 preferentially bind the substrate prior to the Na+-ion. The Na+-concentration affects the Km of the...[Show more]
