Molecular characterization of the human CRT-1 creatine transporter expressed in Xenopus oocytes.

The protein sequence encoded by a creatine transporter cDNA cloned from a human heart library was identical to that cloned from a human kidney library (Nash et al., Receptors Channels 2, 165-174, 1994), except that at position 285 the former contained an Ala residue and the latter contained a Pro residue. Expression of this human heart cDNA clone in Xenopus… CONTINUE READING
