Gentamicin inhibits carrier-mediated dipeptide transport in kidney.


The effect of gentamicin on transport of pyroglutamylhistidine (pGlu-His) was examined in rabbit renal brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV). Gentamicin, an aminoglycoside antibiotic, is limited in its usage because of nephrotoxicity characterized in part by transport defects in the proximal tubule. Since there is no information regarding the effects of… (More)
