The second explanation is consistent with studies using excess glutamate and proline [12]. Mammals do not require arginine in the diet for their survival.

2. Oxaloacetate is only very slowly permeable to the mitochondrial membrane; thus the need for aspartate amino transferase. This process can be reversed if there is a need to transfer reducing power from the mitochondria to the cytoplasm, such as when hydrogen is required for gluconeogenesis from pyruvate in liver. 42 CYTOPLASM MITOCHONDRION Molat.
