The purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of the transport mechanism of pitavastatin, a novel synthetic HMG-CoA reductase inhibitor. Experiments were performed using oocytes of Xenopus laevis expressing several solute carrier (SLC) transporters and recombinant membrane vesicles expressing several human ABC transporters. The acid form of… (More)
Induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) prepared from somatic cells might become a novel therapeutic tool in regenerative medicine, especially for the central nervous system (CNS). In this study, we attempted to induce O4-positive (O4(+)) oligodendrocytes from adult human fibroblast-derived iPSCs in vitro. We used two adult human iPSC cell lines, 201B7 and… (More)
Oligodendrocytes are the myelinating cells of the central nervous system (CNS), and defects in these cells can result in CNS dysfunction. Although oligodendrocyte precursor cell (OPC) transplantation therapy is an effective cure for several disorders, there is no readily available source of these cells. Recent studies have described the generation of… (More)
Two highly deuterium-labeled compounds, (R)-K-13675-d(11) and (R)-K-13675-d(7), were prepared for use as internal standards for low-level quantification of plasma drugs by LC/MS/MS. We successfully demonstrated their utility in pharmacokinetic studies for sensitive and precise drug quantification.
