The kinetics of the influx of tryptophan and phenylalanine into guinea-pig intestinal rings have been examined. The transfer of these two amino acids can be described by a single transport system, each amino acid having an affinity constant, Kt, of about 4 mM for the influx mechanism. Mutual inhibition studies have shown that the inhibitory constant of each… CONTINUE READING
