24142711 Results suggest that leukemia cell proliferation can be significantly suppressed by blocking amino acid transporter LAT3.
24052624 Inhibition of LAT transporters may provide a novel therapeutic target in metastatic castration-resistant prostate cancer, via suppression of mammalian target of rapamycin complex 1 activity and M-phase cell cycle genes.
23221699 L-theanine is transported mostly via the system L transport pathway and its isoforms
22007000 Data show that signaling via the androgen receptor and ATF4 pathways regulates expression of the amino acid transporters LAT1 and LAT3, thereby coordinating their increased expression in prostate cancer cells.
19443642 LAT3 may play a crucial role in the development and maintenance of podocyte structure and function by regulating protein synthesis and the actin cytoskeleton.
