The transport of riboflavin and the relationship of riboflavin transport to the transport of the cyclic organic acids, aminohippurate and penicillin, were investigated in small renal slices in vitro. Riboflavin was accumulated by rabbit renal slices by a transport system that was inhibited by sugar-containing and sugarless flavins, cyclic organic acids including aminohippurate and penicillin, dinitrophenol and cold temperatures, but not by D-ribose or the weak base tolazoline. The transport of… Expand
Molecular and functional characterization of riboflavin specific transport system in rat brain capillary endothelial cells
For the first time, the existence of a specialized and high affinity transport system for riboflavin in RBE4 cells is reported and this transporter can be utilized for targeted delivery in enhancing brain permeation of highly potent drugs on systemic administration. Expand
Riboflavin transport by rabbit renal brush border membrane vesicles.
The results demonstrate the existence of a membrane-associated, and organic anion inhibitor-sensitive, carrier system for RF uptake by renal BBM. Expand
Riboflavin transport by rabbit renal basolateral membrane vesicles.
The results demonstrate the existence of a Na+-dependent BLM binding of RF and a membrane-associated carrier system for RF uptake by renal BLM. Expand
Riboflavin transport by isolated perfused rabbit renal proximal tubules.
Rabbit renal proximal tubular transport of riboflavin was examined by using the in vitro isolated tubule perfusion technique and addition of chlorpromazine, a phenothiazine derivative, inhibited both J(lb) and J(bl), raising the concern about the nutritional status in patients receiving such a type of medication.

Functional characteristics of the human ortholog of riboflavin transporter 2 and riboflavin-responsive expression of its rat ortholog in the small intestine indicate its involvement in riboflavin absorption.
Results combined indicate that RFT2 is a transporter involved in the epithelial uptake of riboflavin in the small intestine for its nutritional utilization. Expand
Current perspectives on the cellular uptake and trafficking of riboflavin.
The long-standing model that riboflavin absorption involves a carrier-mediated transporter has recently been challenged through studies suggesting a receptor-mediated endocytic component. Expand
Genetic Control of Biosynthesis and Transport of Riboflavin and Flavin Nucleotides and Construction of Robust Biotechnological Producers
Whereas earlier RF overproducers were isolated by classical selection, current producers of riboflavin and flavin nucleotides have been developed using modern approaches of metabolic engineering that involve overexpression of structural and regulatory genes of the RF biosynthetic pathway as well as genes involved in the overproduction of the purine precursor of rib oflavin, GTP.

Riboflavin uptake by native Xenopus laevis oocytes.
Xenopus oocytes possess an endogenous, specific, membrane-associated carrier-mediated uptake system for riboflavin, which should further out present understanding of RF uptake by various vertebrate cells. Expand
Mechanism and regulation of riboflavin uptake by human renal proximal tubule epithelial cell line HK-2.
RF uptake by the human-derived renal epithelial cell line HK-2 is via a carrier-mediated system that is temperature and energy dependent and appears to be under the regulation of a Ca2+/calmodulin-mediated pathways and substrate level in the growth medium. Expand
Thiol redox and phosphate transport in renal brush-border membrane. Effect of nicotinamide.
BBM thiol oxidation may be involved in the inhibitory effect of NM on BBM phosphate uptake, and changes in cytosolic NAD levels may affect B BM thiol redox through changes in redox states of NADP and glutathione systems. Expand
