L-lysine uptake was measured in isolated oxyntic glands of rabbit stomach in both Na(+)-containing (1.29 +/- 0.29 nmol.mg-1.(20s)-1) and choline-containing (0.93 +/- 0.15 nmol.mg-1.(20s)-1) medium. Time curves and concentration dependence curves showed higher uptake values in the presence of extracellular Na+. The carrier-mediated uptake of L-lysine fit the(More)
