The age-dependent absolute protein abundance of carboxylesterase (CES) 1 and CES2 in human liver was investigated and applied to predict infant pharmacokinetics (PK) of oseltamivir. The CES absolute protein abundance was determined by liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry proteomics in human liver microsomal and cytosolic fractions prepared from(More)
Protein expression of major hepatic uptake and efflux drug transporters in human pediatric (n = 69) and adult (n = 41) livers was quantified by liquid chromatography / tandem mass spectroscopy (LC-MS/MS). Transporter protein expression of OCT1, OATP1B3, P-gp, and MRP3 was age-dependent. Particularly, significant differences were observed in transporter(More)
Very little is known about the effect of gut microbiota on the ontogeny of drug-processing genes (DPGs) in liver. In this study, livers were harvested from conventional (CV) and germ-free (GF) male and female mice from 1 to 90 days of age. RNA-Seq in livers of 90-day-old male mice showed that xenobiotic metabolism was the most downregulated pathway within(More)
The purpose of this study was to create an open access repository of validated liquid chromatography tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) methods for quantifying 284 important proteins associated with drug absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion (ADME). Various in silico and experimental approaches were used to(More)
The existing biobanks of remnant tissue from clinically indicated kidney biopsies are attractive potential reservoirs for quantification of clinically relevant human tissue proteins by quantitative proteomics. However, a significant caveat of this strategy is that the tissues are often preserved in optimal cutting temperature (OCT) medium. Although OCT is(More)
Precision medicine approach has a potential to ensure optimum efficacy and safety of drugs at individual patient level. Physiologically based pharmacokinetic and pharmacodynamic (PBPK/PD) models could play a significant role in precision medicine by predicting interindividual variability in drug disposition and response. In order to develop robust PBPK/PD(More)
