Function and structure of heterodimeric amino acid transporters

Wagner, Carsten; Lang, Florian; Broer, Stefan


Heterodimeric amino acid transporters are comprised of two subunits, a polytopic membrane protein (light chain) and an associated type II membrane protein (heavy chain). The heavy chain rbAT (related to bo,+ amino acid transporter) associates with the light chain bo,+ AT (bo,+ amino acid transporter) to form the amino acid transport system bo,+, whereas the homologous heavy chain 4F2hc interacts with several light chains to form system L (with LAT1 and LAT2), system y+L (with y+LAT1 and...[Show more]
