Red-cell amino acid transport. Evidence for the presence of system ASC in mature human red blood cells.

Abstract

The properties of Na+-dependent L-alanine transport in human erythrocytes were investigated using K+ as the Na+ substitute. Initial rates of Na+-dependent L-alanine uptake (0.2 mM extracellular amino acid) for erythrocytes from 22 donors ranged from 40 to 180 mumol/litre of cells per h at 37 degrees C. Amino acid uptake over the concentration range 0.1-8 mM… (More)
