Na+-dependent GSH transport in basal-lateral membrane vesicles from rat kidney exhibited saturation kinetics while Na+-independent flux increased linearly up to 10 mM GSH. Inhibitor studies showed that GSH transport was not dependent upon the catalytic activity of gamma-glutamyltransferase. K+, choline and NH+4 ions did not stimulate GSH transport, but Li+ partially substituted for Na+. Na+-dependent GSH transport was inhibited by other gamma-glutamyl amino acids. The membrane also showed Na… CONTINUE READING
