The A system of amino acid transport is concentrative and thought to be a regulator of cell growth. The [11C]methyl alpha-aminoisobutyric acid (MeAIB) is prospectively an ideal tracer for transport measurements with PET, as it is not metabolized and concentrates...

Glutamine (GLN) is a precursor for synthesis of glutamate and gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and has been found in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) at mean concentrations of 0.6 mM. Experiments on slices are usually performed in artificial CSF (aCSF) kept free...

(18)F-Labeled amino acids represent a promising class of imaging agents in tumors, particularly brain tumors. However, the determination of their potential to image peripheral tumors, possibly depending on individual transport characteristics, still remains an area of investigation. The present study...

Incubation of rat isolated skeletal muscles (extensor digitorum longus) in the presence of 100 ng/ml of human recombinant interleukin-15 (IL-15) resulted in a significant decrease in total proteolytic rate, while it had no effect on total protein synthesis as measured...
