Na+-coupled carboxylate transporters (NaCs) mediate the uptake of tricarboxylic acid cycle intermediates in mammalian tissues. Of these transporters, NaC3 (formerly known as Na+-coupled dicarboxylate transporter 3, NaDC3/SDCT2) and NaC2 (formerly known as Na+-coupled citrate transporter, NaCT) have been shown to be expressed in brain. There is, however,(More)
We investigated in the present study the transport characteristics of N-acetyl-L-aspartate in primary cultures of astrocytes from rat cerebral cortex and the involvement of NA+-coupled high-affinity carboxylate transporter NaC3 (formerly known as NaDC3) responsible for N-acetyl-L-aspartate transport. N-acetyl-L-aspartate transport was NA+-dependent and(More)
