Furthermore, divalent metal-ion transporter 1 (DMT1) is iron-preferring membrane transport protein that plays indispensable roles in intestinal nonheme-iron absorption and iron acquisition by erythroid precursor cells.
Although the membrane transport protein LAT1 is known to act as a Trp/Kyn exchanger, accumulating evidence from transport kinetics studies clearly indicate the presence of highly specific, as yet unidentified Trp and Kyn transporters.
The methods developed would be widely applicable to other membrane transport proteins.
