Some organic anions are absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract through carrier-mediated transport mechanism(s), which may include proton-coupled transport, anion exchange transport, and others. However, the molecular identity of the organic anion transporters localized at the apical membrane of human intestinal epithelial cells has not been clearly(More)
The pH-sensitive activity of human organic anion transporting polypeptide OATP-B, which is expressed at the apical membrane of human small intestinal epithelial cells, was functionally characterized. When initial uptake of estrone-3-sulfate, a typical substrate of OATP, was studied kinetically, we observed an increase in V(max) with decrease of pH from 7.4(More)
