PURPOSE OF REVIEW We consider recent advances in epithelial amino acid transport physiology and our understanding of the functioning of amino acid transporters as sensors, as well as carriers, of tissue nutrient supplies. RECENT FINDINGS Gut hormones (e.g. leptin) may regulate intestinal amino acid transporter activity by a variety of mechanisms, although the overall functional significance of such regulation is not yet fully understood. Important functional interactions between amino acid… CONTINUE READING
