Amino Acid Transporters: Systematic Approach and Principles of Control

  • Guido G. Guidotti
  • Gian C. Gazzola

Abstract

All living cells, from autonomous protists to constrained components of the complex multicellular mammalian organisms, require amino acids for replacing their structure, synthesizing essential proteins and supplying sources of metabolic energy. Transport of these molecules across the membranes that fix the boundaries of the cell and generate intracellular discontinuities is one of the determinants of cell survival.
