Amino acid transport systems have been studied in isolated mouse oocytes throughout oogenesis. While these cells were lacking the A-transport system of Ehrlich cell (Christensen, 1975), they were found to be provided with the L- and ASC-systems of Ehrlich cell (Christensen, 1975). Since, in contrast to the A-system, the L- and ASC-systems mainly work by exchanging internal and external amino acids, we propose that their main function is to actively maintain the appropriate internal balance… CONTINUE READING
