Folate transport by prawn hepatopancreas brush-border membrane vesicles.

Abstract

The transport system of folic acid (Pte-Glu) by brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV) isolated from prawn (Penaeus japonicus) hepatopancreas, was studied by measuring the uptake of Pte-Glu. This uptake was found to have two components, intravesicular transport and membrane binding. Membrane binding was not affected by the presence of a transmembrane pH… (More)
