Absorption of nutrients from small intestine follows a number of pathways.
Among these sodium dependent, carrier mediated uphill transport mechanism
plays a major role in the uptake process. Transport proteins involved in
the absorption of nutrients have been cloned and expressed in various _expression
systems. The kinetic characteristics of the expressed Na-Solute cotransporter
are identical to that in the intact tissue. These advances have greatly
helped in understanding the molecular basis of nutrient absorption and malabsorption
Key words: - Na-Solute cotransporter, Intestinal absorption, Active transport..
