Title:
Characteristics of transport of selenoamino acids by epithelial amino acid transporters 
Abstract:
Selenoamino acids are the main form of organic selenium derived from the diet. They are efficiently absorbed in the intestine and reabsorbed in kidney, but the transporter proteins that mediate their cellular uptake have not yet been identified. We here describe the transport pathways of selenoamino acids and derivatives, including selenomethionine, methylselenocysteine, selenocystine, selenobetaine and selenocystamine. Transport studies employed the Xenopus laevis oocyte system expressing the a...    »
