Abstract:Prior transfection with antisense oligonucleotides to the H13 and 4F2 hc genes, singly or in combination, was found to inhibit phytohaemagglutinin-induced activation of cationic amino-acid transport system y+ in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (mostly circulating lymphocytes). These effects on system y+ function or expression mean that 4F2 hc cannot only be the molecular basis of system y+L (Fei, Y.-J., Prasad, P.D., Leibach, F.H. and Ganapathy, V. (1995) Biochemistry 34, 8744-8751).
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
