Cystinuria was first described in 1810. Since the initial description, a group of renal cellular transport deficit diseases has been characterized. The study of genetic dieases that create a specific aminoaciduria has expanded our knowledge of cellular structure, cellular transport, and intracellular concentration gradients. A review of the thories and experimental data obtained through investigations of renal aminoacidurias are presented.
