Movement of biotin across the rat intestinal basolateral membrane. Studies with membrane vesicles.


The characteristics of the transport process of the water-soluble vitamin biotin across the basolateral membrane (BLM) of rat intestine, i.e. the exit of biotin from rat enterocyte, were examined using established BLM vesicles (BLMV) techniques. Results of osmolarity and temperature studies have indicated that the majority of biotin taken up by these… (More)
