Core Tip The aim of the current study was to demonstrate the role of glutamate transport, the most abundant intracellular hepatic amino acid, in liver cholestasis. The study was conducted in vitro using HepG2 cells as well as the livers of bile duct ligated rats and human cholestasis specimens. The principal data revealed that the activity and expression of EAAT2-mediated glutamate transport were altered both in vitro and in vivo. This supports the involvement of glutamate transporters, as an indirect liver response and/or as a direct hepatic target, in restoring intracellular pools of this amino acid which are probably altered after cholestasis.
