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).
