Amino acid transport System A (SysA) plays an important role in mediating the transplacental transfer of neutral amino acids from mother to fetus. Given that prior work has demonstrated that SysA activity is regulated, both over gestation and in response to dietary restriction during pregnancy, we examined the response of SysA activity and sodium-dependent neutral amino acid transporter (SNAT; responsible for SysA activity) expression to cAMP analogues and amino acid deprivation in BeWo cells… CONTINUE READING
