The Ehrlich cell has a component of transport, for which alanine, serine, and cysteine are preferred substrates, which is not reactive with cy-(methylamino)isobutyric acid or Nmethylalanine and is only weakly reactive with other methylamino acids and glycine. Although the new component is similar to one described before (the so-called A system) as to its rate, its dependence on the presence of Na+, its low sensitivity to irradiation, and other properties, nevertheless it shows a distinctly… CONTINUE READING
