In the small intestine, cationic amino acids are transported by y+-like and b0,+-like systems present in the luminal side of the epithelium. Here, we report the characterization of a b0,+-like system in the apical membrane of the chicken jejunum, and its properties as an amino acid exchanger. Analysis of the brush border membrane by Western blot points out the presence of rBAT (protein related to b0,+ amino acid transport system) in these membranes. A functional mechanism for amino acid… CONTINUE READING
