ABC and Gaceta Médica, among other media, have echoed on a study about the structure of a member of the L-amino acid transporter family (LAT), headed by IRB Barcelona researcher Manuel Palacín. “Knowing how LATs recognise the amino acids that they have to introduce into the cell allows us to better understand their function and helps us decipher the molecular defects associated with different pathologies and thus to develop potential treatments,” says Palacín.
