BACKGROUND As important mediators of solute transport at the blood-brain and blood-cerebrospinal fluid barriers, ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters (including ABCB1, ABCC1, and ABCC2), impact the bioavailability of drugs and endogenous substrates in the brain. While several ABCB1, ABCC1, and ABCC2 single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) have been(More)
Heme oxygenase 1 (HO-1) is an enzyme important in the catabolism of heme that is induced under conditions of oxidative stress. HO-1 degradation of heme yields biliverdin, bilirubin, carbon monoxide and iron. HO-1 is thought to serve a protective antioxidant function, and upregulation of HO-1 has been demonstrated in experimental models of neurodegeneration,(More)
