Inhibiting effects of Absorption of Amino Acids

Hello. Does anyone know of any inhibiting effects on absorption some amino acids may have on other amino acids if taken at high doses? For a hypothetical example, is it possible that taking in 20 grams of Arginine might inhibit Tyrosine from being absorbed by the body? I’m curious because my diet has been fairly high in protein, but my protein has basically been coming from the same foods. Any input would be appreciated.

Maybe somebody has or could discover some small difference, but if there is one, it isn’t something to worry about. Man has been doing well on whole-protein foods ever since he has existed. Clearly, all amino acids can be well absorbed at the same time.
