Most, if not all, ingested protein is transported across the gut as its constituent amino acids. Thus, the way the gut handles amino acids is an important physiologic problem, and their mishandling by the gut in disease states represents an important threat to general body activities. I propose to discuss some of the knowledge that has been gathered over the past 10 to 15 years concerning the mechanisms of amino acid absorption. The data to be presented have been gathered from three major kinds of studies: the studies of in vitro model systems, physiologic studies of humans, and studies of patients with syndromes involving specific amino absorption abnormalities.
