Amino Acids - Part 1- Intolerance

This blog post is one of several that will be forthcoming related to amino acids. This article is focused on a particular family of amino acid transporters, SLC7A1-14, which is involved in the transport of many different amino acids (depending on the particular gene - see below). If you believe you have had intolerance to supplementing with specific amino acids - it may be worthwhile checking into the status of the particular relevant gene(s) noted below. In the interim, i have kept the material here simple, and from one source from now - Gene Cards. It is very basic, but should allow you to take the first steps in checking out if this family of transporters may be causing amino acid intolerance. Some aminos covered by this family of transporters are: Lysine, Arginine, Tyrosine, Phenylalinine, Trypotophan, Histadine, Ornithine, Cysteine, Glutamine, etc.
