IDENTIFICATION OF THE UDP-GLUCURONOSYLTRANSFERASE ISOFORMS INVOLVED IN MYCOPHENOLIC ACID PHASE II METABOLISM
Mycophenolic acid (MPA), the active metabolite of the immunosuppressant mycophenolate mofetil is primarily metabolized by glucuronidation. The nature of UDP-glucuronosyltransferases (UGTs) involvedExpand

Renal phenotype in mice lacking the Kir5.1 (Kcnj16) K+ channel subunit contrasts with that observed in SeSAME/EAST syndrome
The heteromeric inwardly rectifying Kir4.1/Kir5.1 K+ channel underlies the basolateral K+ conductance in the distal nephron and is extremely sensitive to inhibition by intracellular pH. TheExpand

The absence of intrarenal ACE protects against hypertension.
Activation of the intrarenal renin-angiotensin system (RAS) can elicit hypertension independently from the systemic RAS. However, the precise mechanisms by which intrarenal Ang II increases bloodExpand

IN VITRO METABOLISM STUDY OF BUPRENORPHINE: EVIDENCE FOR NEW METABOLIC PATHWAYS
Buprenorphine (BUP) is a synthetic derivative of the morphine alkaloid thebaine. BUP is metabolized by N-dealkylation to form the active metabolite nor-buprenorphine (Nor-BUP), and both undergoExpand
