Cytochomosome P450 enzymes (CYP) are heme-containing monooxygenases responsible for oxidative metabolism of many exogenous and endogenous compounds including drugs. The species difference of CYP limits the extent to which data obtained from animals can be translated to humans in pharmacodynamics or pharmacokinetics studies. Transgenic expression of human(More)
AIM To investigate the stereoselective binding of mexiletine or ketoprofen enantiomers with different recombinant domains of human serum albumin (HSA). METHODS Three domains (HSA DOM I, II and III) were expressed in Pichia pastoris GS115 cells. Blue Sepharose 6 Fast Flow was employed to purify the recombinant HSA domains. The binding properties of the(More)
Ginkgolic acids (GAs) in natural product Ginkgobiloba L. are the pharmacological active but also toxic components. Two compounds, GA (C15:1) and GA (C17:1) are the most abundant GAs. In this study, several in vitro and in vivo models were applied to investigate transport mechanism of GAs. A rapid and sensitive LC-MS/MS method for the simultaneous(More)
2-Phenoxy-indan-1-one derivatives (PIOs) are a series of novel central-acting cholinesterase inhibitors for the treatment of Alzheimer's disease (AD). The adequate distribution of PIOs to the central nervous system (CNS) is essential for its effectiveness. However, articles related with their permeability in terms of CNS penetration across the blood-brain(More)
Membrane transporters play a significant role in drug absorption, distribution and excretion, and they consequently affect the pharmacokinetics, efficacy and safety of a drug. Under certain circumstances, such as pathological processes or exposure to certain substances, the expression of drug transporters is modified in cells. Change in transporter(More)
This paper is to report the development of a high-throughput in vitro system to screen hPXR/CAR mediated CYP2B6 drug inducers, and the application of it into the quick determination of induction activity toward CYP2B6 by various commonly used traditional Chinese medicines (TCMs) extract. Dual reporter gene assays were performed. The hPXR/CAR expression(More)
NTCP is specifically expressed on the basolateral membrane of hepatocytes, participating in the enterohepatic circulation of bile salts, especially conjugated bile salts, to maintain bile salts homeostasis. In addition, recent studies have found that NTCP is a functional receptor of HBV and HDV. Therefore, it is important to study the interaction between(More)
Ginkgolic acids (GAs), primarily found in the leaves, nuts, and testa of ginkgo biloba, have been identified with suspected allergenic, genotoxic and cytotoxic properties. However, little information is available about GAs toxicity in kidneys and the underlying mechanism has not been thoroughly elucidated so far. Instead of GAs extract, the renal(More)
OBJECTIVE To construct the vectors of human glutathione S-transferase A1 (GSTA1), P1 (GSTP1), T1(GSTT1) genes and express in Escherichia coli (E. coli). METHODS Human GSTA1, GSTP1 and GSTT1 gene whole length cDNAs were amplified by RT-PCR and then subcloned into pET-28a(+) vectors. The proteins were expressed in E. coli BL21(DE3). After purified by Ni2+(More)
