We evaluated the effect of acetaminophen (APAP), given as a single, 1g/kg body weight dose, on expression and activity of rat liver multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (Mrp2) and P-glycoprotein (P-gp), two major canalicular drug transporters. The studies were performed 24h after administration of the drug. APAP induced an increase in plasma membrane(More)
The effect of the diuretic spironolactone (SL) on expression and function of intestinal P-glycoprotein (P-gp), as well as its impact on intestinal absorption of digoxin, was explored. Rats were treated with daily doses of 200 micromol/kg b.wt. of SL intraperitoneally for 3 consecutive days. The small intestine was divided into four equal segments of(More)
This paper presents a study on interference in microcellular networks with reuse patterns based on a square grid. The performance of the system is assessed by means of the carrier-to-interference (U I) ratio for a series of situations such as: the worst case condition, mobiles randomly positioned, and channel activity according to a given trafJic intensity.(More)
Excretion of lipophilic cationic toxic compounds from the interior of the hepatocyte to the bile is mediated by P-Glycoprotein. It is an integral protein located in the bile canaliculi. The present work study the hepatic expression of P-Glycoprotein in different models of experimental liver disease: Acute paracetamol intoxication, extrahepatic cholestasis(More)
