Urea is the major end-product of amino acid deamination in mammals and consequently is often considered a waste product of metabolism. However, regulated movement of urea across plasma membranes underlies fundamental biological processes that include urinary concentration and urea nitrogen salvaging. Urea transporter (UT) proteins are central to modulating urea movement across biological membranes, and over the past decade major steps have been made in defining their molecular identity and… CONTINUE READING
