Shyamala, MB and Bhat, JV (1966) Intestinal transport in the silkworm, Bombyx mori L., of amino acids from mixtures. In: Journal of Insect Physiology, 12 (1). pp. 129-135.Full text not available from this repository. (Request a copy)
The rate of absorption of amino acids from mixtures has been studied in the silkworm midgut by using an in vitro perfusion technique. The rates differ for individual amino acids. A characteristic absorption pattern is observed which is independent of the amino acid composition of the mixture used. The metabolic inhibitors dinitrophenol and cyanide have no effect on the amino acid transport from mixtures. Based on these results an energy-independent, carrier-mediated transport is postulated.
