Lysosomal Amino Acid Efflux Assay
Authors:  Chunlei Cang and Dejian Ren, date: 02/20/2014, view: 9044, Q&A: 0
As the cellular “recycling” organelle, lysosomes break down proteins into amino acids, which are then transported into cytosol for reuse by various amino acid transporters. The transport rate of an amino acid is presumably regulated by cellular ...
