The amino acid transporter asc-1 is not involved in cystinuria.

BACKGROUND The human amino acid transporter asc-1 (SLC7A10) exhibits substrate selectivity for small neutral amino acids, including cysteine, is expressed in kidney, is located close to the cystinuria B gene and presents sequence variants (e.g., E112D) in some cystinuria patients. We have cloned human asc-1, assessed its transport characteristics, localized… CONTINUE READING
