The correlation of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF)/serum concentration quotients was used as a method for identification of amino acids which are transported by a common carrier system across the blood-CSF barrier. Isoleucine, leucine, valine, phenylalanine, tyrosine and lysine were found to compete for the same carrier system. This group of amino acids in man was found to be different from the system described as a neutral amino acid carrier at the blood-brain barrier in rats. In man, methionine and… CONTINUE READING
