The mechanisms underlying the reduced fetal plasma concentrations of amino acids and glucose associated with intrauterine growth restriction (IUGR) remain to be fully established. The activity of the amino acid transporter system A has been shown to be reduced in the syncytiotrophoblast microvillous membrane (MVM) in IUGR, however the impact of these changes on transplacental transport is difficult to assess without information on system A activity in the basal plasma membrane (BM).
