Sodium-taurine cotransport in reptilian renal brush-border membrane vesicles
The data suggest the presence of a highly efficient and high-affinity reabsorptive taurine transport system on the luminal membrane of the kidney of the garter snake, a species that can secrete taurines in vivo.
Renal amino acid transport: cellular and molecular events from clearance studies to frog eggs
This article reviews recent advances in the mechanisms of renal amino acid transport and suggests that a comprehensive understanding of cytoskeletal interactions protein phosphorylation and phospholipid domains and their linkage to the primary structure of the transporter need to be studied.
Isolation and function of the amino acid transporter PAT1 (slc36a1) from rabbit and discrimination between transport via PAT1 and system IMINO in renal brush-border membrane vesicles
The functional characteristics of rabbit PAT1 in either mammalian cells or renal BBMV suggest that PAT1 is the low-affinity transporter of proline, glycine and hydroxyproline believed to be defective in patients with iminoglycinuria.
Amino acid transport in the renal proximal tubule
More recent information on amino acid transport in the renal proximal tubule is summarized emphasizing functional and regulatory aspects.


Renal transport of neutral amino acids. Cation-dependent uptake of L-alanine by luminal-membrane vesicles.
A closer examination of the mechanism of transport of L-alanine in vesicles from pars convoluta revealed that an H+ gradient can drive the transport of H+ into the vesicle both in the presence and in the absence of Na+.
Demonstration of H+‐ and Na+‐coupled co‐transport of beta‐alanine by luminal membrane vesicles of rabbit proximal tubule.
The demonstration of competition between the Na+‐gradient‐dependent uptake of beta‐alanine and taurine, without appreciable inhibition by alpha‐amino acids in vesicles from pars convoluta as well as from pars recta, strongly suggests that the luminal membrane of proximal tubule has transport systems for the reabsorption of Beta‐AMino acids which are distinct from alpha-amino acid transport systems.
Taurine transport in renal brush-border-membrane vesicles.
Taurine transport in isolated brush-border-membrane vesicles from rat kidney is concentrative and it is driven by the Na+ gradient and transmembrane potential difference; binding is not a significant
An efficient method for the isolation and separation of basolateral-membrane and luminal-membrane vesicles from rabbit kidney cortex.
Uptake studies showed that both adult and newborn rabbit luminal-membrane vesicles, in contrast with the basolateral- Membrane preparations, possess an Na+-dependent electrogenic transport system for L-proline.
Renal adaptation to altered dietary sulfur amino acid intake occurs at luminal brushborder membrane.
It is demonstrated that taurine is actively transported into membrane vesicles by a sodium-dependent transport system and that the luminal brushborder membrane participates in the adaptation.
