- Arginine transport in human erythroid cells: discrimination of CAT1 and 4F2hc/y+LAT2 roles. Rotoli, Bianca; Closs, Ellen; Barilli, Amelia; Visigalli, Rossana; Simon, Alexandra; Habermeier, Alice; Bianchi, Nicoletta; Gambari, Roberto; Gazzola, Gian; Bussolati, Ovidio; Dall'Asta, Valeria // Pflugers Archiv European Journal of Physiology;Oct2009, Vol. 458 Issue 6, p1163
Since arginine metabolites, such as nitric oxide and polyamines, influence the expression of genes involved in erythroid differentiation, the transport of the cationic amino acid may play an important role in erythroid cells. However, available data only concern the presence in these cells of...
