Ion dependence of cystine and lysine uptake by rat renal brush-border membrane vesicles.

Abstract

The shared transport system for uptake of L-cystine and L-lysine was examined in isolated rat renal brush-border membrane vesicles for the ionic requirements for activation of the system. No requirement for sodium was seen for either cystine or lysine influx. However, the efflux of lysine from the vesicle was stimulated by Na+. Therefore, the transport… (More)
