The expression of monocarboxylate transporters MCT1, MCT2 and MCT4 in the rumen, small intestine and liver was examined in free-ranging and captive reindeer. In addition, expression of chaperone protein CD147, which is needed for the activity of MCT1 and MCT4, was studied in the rumen of suckling calves. Immunoblotting of cell membrane proteins showed the expression of MCT1 and MCT4, but not that of MCT2 in the rumen of reindeer. In free-ranging reindeer the amount of MCT1 was higher than in… CONTINUE READING
