    Keywords : Solute carriers; amino acid transporter; SLC38 family; SLC38A8; SNAT8; SLC38A10; SNAT10; SLC38A9; SNAT9; amino acid starvation; AAR; mTORC1; Neuroscience; Neurovetenskap;

    Abstract : In cells and organelles transporters are responsible for translocation of amino acids, sugars and nucleotides among others. In the central nervous system (CNS), amino acid transporters can function as neurotransmitter transporters and nutrient sensors. READ MORE

  2. 2. Characterization of Amino Acid Transporters in the Brain : Molecular and Functional Studies of Members within the Solute Carrier Families SLC38 and SLC6

    Abstract : Solute carriers (SLCs) comprise the largest group of transporters in humans and there are currently 52 SLC families. They are embedded in cellular membranes and transport numerous molecules; defects in many of the genes encoding SLCs have been connected to pathological conditions, and several SLCs are potential drug targets.
