Glutamate had no significant effect on the uptake of 0.025 mM cystine by isolated rat renal cortical tubules and brushborder membrane vesicles in contrast to lysine which significantly inhibits cystine transport. Glutamate, however, markedly inhibited cystine uptake by rat renal tubule cells grown in a serum-free, hormonally defined media for 5 days. Lysine also inhibited cystine transport in these cultured renal tubule cells.
