Abstract: The objective of this study was to investigate the presence of a large neutral amino acid transporter on the ARPE-19 cell line. ARPE-19 cells were grown on 24-well plates for uptake studies. Uptake characteristics of [3H]L-phenylalanine (L-Phe) were determined at various concentrations and pH at 37 degrees C. Inhibition studies were conducted in presence of L- and D-amino acids, metabolic inhibitors, like ouabain, sodium azide, and in presence of sodium-free medium, to delineate the mechanism of uptake. RT-PCR…
