Characterisation of a Transport System for Cystine in Leucocytes Lysosomal Membranes


Normal leucocyte lysosomal membranes are able to transport cystine by a saturable process exhibiting efflux (T) and Counter-transport (CT). Leucocyte lysosomes from cystinotic patients lack this carrier mediated transport and thus store cystine. In order to establish whether T and CT are mediated by the same site, the effect of proteolytic enzymes, ATP… (More)
