Cytokine modulation of Na(+)-dependent glutamine transport across the brush border membrane of monolayers of human intestinal Caco-2 cells.

Abstract

Previous studies have demonstrated that Na(+)-dependent brush border glutamine transport is diminished in septic patients. To examine the potential regulation of this decreased transport by endotoxin, cytokines, or glucocorticoids, the human intestinal Caco-2 cell line was studied in vitro. Na(+)-dependent glutamine transport across the apical brush border… (More)
