New creatine transporter assay and identification of distinct creatine transporter isoforms in muscle.

Abstract:

Despite the pivotal role of creatine (Cr) and phosphocreatine (PCr) in muscle metabolism, relatively little is known about sarcolemmal creatine transport, creatine transporter (CRT) isoforms, and subcellular localization of the CRT proteins. To be able to quantify creatine transport across the sarcolemma, we have developed a new in vitro assay using rat sarcolemmal giant vesicles. The rat giant sarcolemmal vesicle assay reveals the presence of a specific high-affinity and saturable transport ...
