Uptake of [35S]hypotaurine by brain slices prepared from adult and 8-day-old mice was studied at varying temperatures, under O2 and N2 atmospheres, and in the presence of metabolic inhibitors and varying concentrations of hypotaurine in the incubation medium. The tissue/medium concentration gradients generated were exceptionally high for an amino acid. Hypotaurine uptake was energy- and temperature-dependent, more strictly in adult mice. Uptake was saturable, containing a high-affinity and a… CONTINUE READING
