The human hepatoma cell line Hep G2 was used to investigate amino acid transport systems in human liver tissue. The ubiquitous transport systems responsible for the uptake of most neutral amino acids (systems A, ASC and L) were found to be present. Transport system A was predominant for proline uptake but system ASC was the major Na(+)-dependent transport system, particularly for glutamine. The specific hepatic system N was functional, but only partially mediated glutamine uptake. The study of… CONTINUE READING
