okay i have asked this question before and looked at the archives, i think maybe the scientist misunderstood my question, i'll try again, what i'm trying to figure out is if the magnesium ion can get into the cell via another pathway besides the normal uptake pathway(magnesium/ATPase pathway). okay so normally the magnesium ion is taken into the cell via the the magnesium/ATPase enzyme. now if we wanted to get magnesium into the cell through another pathway. suppose we were able to bound able to bond magnesium to an amino acid, would this magnesium+amino acid compound be able to get into the cell via the amino acid pathway?
