One of the functions of the kidney is the tubular re-absorption of solutes, such as amino acids, filtrated in the glomerulus. Several amino acid transporters are involved in this process and when defective they cause primary inherited aminoacidurias (PIA).
The new study analyses the dysfunction of basolateral transporters through a transgenic animal model.
This study is led by Manuel Palacín from IRB Barcelona and Virgínia Nunes from IDIBELL.
