The luminal uptake of L-cystine and cationic amino acids by (re)absorptive epithelia, as found in the small intestine and the proximal kidney tubule, is mediated by the transport system b(0,+), which is defective in cystinuria. Expression studies in Xenopus laevis oocytes and other nonepithelial cells as well as genetic studies on cystinuria patients have… CONTINUE READING
