Much has been learned about plasma membrane glutamine transporter activities in health and disease over the past 30 years, including their potential regulatory role in metabolism. Since the 1960s, discrimination among individual glutamine transporters was based on functional characteristics such as substrate specificity, ion dependence, and kinetic and regulatory properties. Within the past two years, several genes encoding for proteins with these defined activities (termed "systems") have been… Expand
Chapter 2 Amino Acid Transporters and Glutamine
• Glutamine, a nonessential but physiologically important amino acid, is transported across cell membranes by a variety of amino acid transport systems. • Cloned glutamine transporters have beenExpand
Membrane transporters for the special amino acid glutamine: structure/function relationships and relevance to human health
TLDR
The presence of glycosylation and/or phosphorylation sites located at the extracellular or intracellular faces has been predicted and are representing potential targets for pharmacological intervention in glutamine homeostasis. Expand
Glutamine transport. From energy supply to sensing and beyond.
TLDR
Insight in involvement of these transporters in cell redox control, cancer metabolism and drug interactions are arising, stimulating basic research to uncover molecular mechanisms of transport and regulation. Expand
Functional Properties and Cellular Distribution of the System A Glutamine Transporter SNAT1 Support Specialized Roles in Central Neurons*
TLDR
The functional properties and cellular distribution of SNAT1 support a primary role forSNAT1 in glutamine transport serving the glutamate/GABA-glutamine cycle in central neurons, and localization of SNat1 to certain dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra and cholinergic motoneurons suggests that SN AT1 may play additional specialized roles.

TLDR
The growth of all hepatomas was glutamine dependent, and competitive inhibition of ATB(0)-mediated glutamine uptake blocked proliferation only in poorly differentiated cells lacking SN1 or SN2 expression and exhibiting low glutamine synthetase mRNA levels. Expand
The Human SLC1A5 (ASCT2) Amino Acid Transporter: From Function to Structure and Role in Cell Biology
TLDR
An intriguing function has been described for ASCT2 that is exploited as a receptor by a group of retroviruses to infect human cells and has generated interest in its candidacy as a pharmacological target for new anticancer drugs. Expand
OCTN Cation Transporters in Health and Disease
TLDR
Proteoliposomes represent a promising experimental tool suitable for large-scale molecular screening of interactions of OCTNs with chemicals regarding human health, thus representing useful pharmacological targets. Expand
Identification of a plasma membrane glutamine transporter from the rat hepatoma cell line H4-IIE-C3.
TLDR
Enhanced glutamine uptake in rat hepatoma cells is mediated by the expression of a novel ASCT/B0 transporter isoform rather than by increased expression of the ASCT2 mRNA found in normal rat liver. Expand
Amino Acid Transport Defects in Human Inherited Metabolic Disorders
TLDR
The physiological functions of amino acid transporters will be described by the inherited diseases that arise from transporter impairment, and the pathogenesis, clinical phenotype, laboratory findings, diagnosis, genetics, and treatment of these disorders are briefly described. Expand
Functional expression of two system A glutamine transporter isoforms in rat auditory brainstem neurons
TLDR
The study of these transporters in situ gives an indication of the mechanisms of neuronal glutamine supply as well as points of regulation of neurotransmitter production, cellular signaling and metabolism in the native neuronal environment. Expand

Molecular biology of mammalian plasma membrane amino acid transporters.
TLDR
The tissue expression, transport characteristics, structure-function relationship, and the putative physiological roles of four amino acid transporters belonging to four protein families are described. Expand

GlnT is the first member of the system A family of neutral amino acid transporters with 11 putative membrane-spanning domains and is a potential target to modulate presynaptic glutamatergic function. Expand
Cloning and expression of a novel Na(+)-dependent neutral amino acid transporter structurally related to mammalian Na+/glutamate cotransporters.
TLDR
Transport characteristics of SATT are similar to the Na(+)-dependent neutral amino acid transport activity designated System ASC, but important differences are noted, including SATT's apparent low expression in ASC-containing tissues such as liver or placenta and the lack of trans-stimulation. Expand
Characterization of Na(+)-independent glutamine transport in rat liver.
TLDR
The glutamine transport agency is provisionally designated as system "n" on the basis of Na+ independence, pH sensitivity, absence of trans-stimulation, and an amino acid selectivity similar to that of the previously described hepatic Na(+)-dependent system N. Expand
Identification and characterization of an amino acid transporter expressed differentially in liver
TLDR
This is the first transporter gene identified within the N- system, one of the major amino acid transport systems in the body, and it is termed mNAT, for murine N-system amino acid transporter, to suggest a potential role in hepatocyte physiology. Expand
Characteristics and regulation of hepatic glutamine transport.
TLDR
It is clear that under certain metabolic conditions the liver represents a source of glutamine for other tissues in the body and net efflux must occur, and measurement of saturable, Na(+)-independent glutamine transport by system L substantiates this proposal. Expand
