Bohmer, Christoph; Broer, Angelika; Kingsland (previously Munzinger), Michael; Kowalczuk, Sonja; Rasko, John Edward; Lang, Florian; Broer, Stefan


The mechanism of the mouse (m)B0AT1 (slc6a19) transporter was studied in detail using two electrode voltage-clamp techniques and tracer studies in the Xenopus oocyte expression system. All neutral amino acids induced inward currents at physiological potentials, but large neutral non-aromatic amino acids were the preferred substrates of mB0AT1. Substrates were transported with K0.5 values ranging from approx. 1 mM to approx. 10 mM. The transporter mediates Na+-amino acid co-transport with a...[Show more]
