Actions of thyroid hormones (THs) are determined by intracellular free hormone concentration. Here we report that enhanced TH extrusion via a saturable, cold-sensitive mechanism lowers intracellular TH and causes TH resistance in hepatoma cells. Since these cells overexpress multidrug resistance P-glycoproteins and TH extrusion and resistance are blunted by(More)
BACKGROUND & AIMS Canalicular secretion is rate limiting in overall blood-to-bile transport of bile acids. Studies using transfected cells have implicated the canalicular ecto-adenosine triphosphatase (ecto-ATPase) in adenosine triphosphate (ATP)-dependent bile acid transport. However, the structural features of this ecto-ATPase are not those anticipated(More)
Secretion of anionic endo- and xenobiotics is essential for the survival of animal and plant cells; however, the underlying molecular mechanisms remain uncertain. To better understand one such model system--i.e., secretion of bile acids by the liver--we utilized a strategy analogous to that employed to identify the multidrug resistance (mdr) genes. We(More)
