The cellular and molecular regulation of intestinal absorption of the water-soluble vitamin riboflavine (RF) is poorly understood. The availability of a suitable in vitro cultured system that possesses the transport characteristics of the native intestinal absorptive cells would provide a powerful means to address this issue. In this study, we examined RF uptake by the human-derived cultured Caco-2 intestinal epithelial cells. RF uptake was Na+ and pH independent and occurred without metabolic… CONTINUE READING
