Transcellular transport of energy substrates across the vascular endothelial cells of the brain is accomplished by integral membrane carrier proteins, such as the glucose transporter GLUT1 and the monocarboxylic acid transporter MCT1. The abundance of these proteins may vary depending on age and nutritional status. In this study we compared the expression of MCT1 in cerebral cortex of suckling and adult rats to determine whether the former, which use considerably more monocarboxylates such as… CONTINUE READING
