Pure pressure stress increased monocarboxylate transporter in human aortic smooth muscle cell membrane


Lactate is formed and utilized continuously under fully aerobic conditions. Lactate is oxidized actively at all times, especially during exercise. Family of monocarboxylate transport proteins (MCTs) that are differentially expressed in cells and tissues accomplishes the facilitated transport of lactate across membranes. Previously we reported that there is… (More)
