Broer, Stefan; Cavanaugh, Juleen; Rasko, John Edward


Hartnup disorder is an autosomal recessive abnormality of renal and gastrointestinal neutral amino acid transport. A corresponding transport activity has been characterized in kidney and intestinal cells and named system B0. The failure to resorb amino acids in this disorder is thought to be compensated by a protein-rich diet.
