Blood amino acid compartmentation between plasma and red blood cells was studied in mice bearing the Lewis lung carcinoma. The animals showed a change in compartmentation with an increase in the concentration of most amino acids in the plasmatic fraction with the exception of glycine, glutamine, aspartate, asparagine, and taurine. This work focuses on the importance of studying the distribution of amino acids in both fractions when performing studies concerning amino acid metabolism in
