Na+-dependent uptake of the amino acids L-proline and L-methionine was greatly accelerated when pig lymphocytes were activated with phytohaemagglutinin or other mitogens. The increased influx was apparent after incubation with phytohaemagglutinin for 1 h, and reached a maximum after 24 h. The lymphocytes appear to possess at least three different transport systems for neutral amino acids with properties similar to, but not identical with, those described for other cells. The activity of a… CONTINUE READING
