Disorders characterized by defective transport of Amino Acids across Cell Membranes. These include deficits in transport across brush-border Epithelial Cell Membranes of the Small Intestine (Microvilli) and Kidney Tubules; transport across the basolateral Membrane; and transport across the Membranes of intracellular Organelles.
