The proceedings of a German Society of Biological Chemistry Conference on Coordinate Regulation between Transport and Metabolism of Glutamine, Glutamate, and Gamma-Glutamyl Compounds, held in May 1990, in Titisee, Germany. Reports of research in physiology, biochemistry, molecular biology, and medicine, examine such topics as the methodology for assessing amino acid transport systems, their energetics, the specific features of amino acid transport in different subcellular organelles and tissues, and the functional consequences and physiological importance. The 17 papers should interest biochemists, physiologists, cell biologists, students in those fields, and physicians. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
