Title: Fibroblasts as a Bio-Cellular Model for Studying Amino Acids Transport in Schizophrenia, Bipolar and
Related CNS Disorders
Dr. Cathy Lee*, Chang-Ren Chen, and Alina Yang
Professor
Orebro University
Sweden
Abstract
Tyrosine and tryptophan are precursors to dopamine and serotonin and are involved in partial regulation of dopamine and serotonin synthesis. Changes
in tyrosine and or tryptophan availability may influence dopamine-serotonin function that may cause widespread changes both in neurotransmission and
psychopathology in patients with schizophrenia, bipolar-I and related CNS disorders. Competitive transport with other amino acids or aberrant transport
of these precursors across the cell membranes/blood brain barrier (BBB) can cause a limited availability of tyrosine and/or tryptophan to the brain.
Transport of neutral amino acids including tyrosine, tryptophan and alanine, mainly occurs through L and A system. Aberrant tyrosine transport in
schizophrenia, bipolar-I disorders and autism, results from different investigations, functionality and the relationship between tyrosine, tryptophan and
alanine transport in fibroblasts will be presented and discussed.
