The rat intestinal imino acid carrier is chloride independent, while in guinea pig and rabbit intestine it is chloride dependent. While non-alpha-amino acids do not significantly interact with guinea pig and rabbit imino acid carriers, inhibition studies had indicated that in rat small intestine beta-alanine, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA), and probably taurine might be transported by the imino acid carrier. The present study of rat jejunum demonstrates that the half-maximal activation… CONTINUE READING
