Uptake and utilization of exogenous cystine by cystinotic and normal fibroblasts.


The uptake of l-[(35)S]cystine was studied in six cystinotic and six normal fibroblast lines grown for five days either on cover slips or in 32-oz plastic flasks. Cystinotics showed greater uptake than normals. The apparent K(t) for cystine entry in both types of cells was 0.043 mM but cystinotic cells showed a higher maximum velocity of entry. A comparison… (More)
