Alterations of Amino Acid Transport in the Central Nervous System

Abstract

Alterations in the transport and in the levels and regional distribution of amino acids occur under a variety of conditions, including normal development. Since the levels, distribution, and movement of amino acids have important effects on brain metabolism, their changes would be reflected in altered metabolism. An understanding of control of amino acid transport is a goal toward which we have directed much of our research interest. The results obtained suggest that there is no single mechanism that regulates acid transport, but that there are many transport systems with different properties influenced by a number of factors.
