This paper discusses active transport of amino acids and sugars and includes consideration of properties of the transport systems with respect to concentration dependence, specificity, and relationships to sodium concentration and cellular metabolism. The Na-dependence of these transport processes is particularly important, because an understanding of this characteristic should provide valuable information on the molecular mechanisms involved.
