Characteristics of large neutral amino acid-induced release of preloaded L-glutamine from rat cerebral capillaries in vitro: effects of ammonia, hepatic encephalopathy, and gamma-glutamyl transpeptidase inhibitors.


The release of newly loaded L-[14C]glutamine (L-Gln) from rat cerebral cortical capillaries was stimulated by L-transport system substrates: tryptophan (TRY), leucine (leu), and nonlabeled L-Gln, respectively, by 32, 50, and 40% above the basal release resulting from superfusion with standard Krebs-Henseliet buffer. However, no stimulation was observed upon… (More)
