The kidneys play an important role in regulating vitamin B(6) body homeostasis, but limited information exists regarding the mechanism of pyridoxine uptake by renal epithelial cells, and no study exists on its regulation. To address these issues, we used the renal opossum-derived tubular epithelial (opossum kidney; OK) cells and found pyridoxine uptake to 1… CONTINUE READING
