Human OATP4C1/rat Oatp4c1 might be a first step of the transport pathway of digoxin and various compounds into urine in the kidney, which is one of the most commonly prescribed drugs for the treatment of heart failure.
IL-17 Enhances the Net Angiogenic Activity and In Vivo Growth of Human Non-Small Cell Lung Cancer in SCID Mice through Promoting CXCR-2-Dependent Angiogenesis1
It is demonstrated that IL-17 increases the net angiogenic activity and in vivo growth of NSCLC via promoting CXCR-2-dependent angiogenesis and suggest that targeting CX CR-2 signaling may be a novel promising strategy to treat patients with NSCLCs.
Transport of estrone 3-sulfate mediated by organic anion transporter OATP4C1: estrone 3-sulfate binds to the different recognition site for digoxin in OATP4C1.
The results indicate that estrone 3-sulfate does not bind to the recognition site for digoxin in OATP4C1.
Transport of fluorescent chenodeoxycholic acid via the human organic anion transporters OATP1B1 and OATP1B3 Published, JLR Papers in Press, March 13, 2006.
The results suggest that OATP1B1 and OATp1B3 play important roles in CDCA uptake into the liver, and fluorescent bile acids are useful tools to characterize the uptake properties of membrane transporters.

Overexpression of human kidney-specific organic anion transporter SLCO4C1 in rat kidney reduced hypertension, cardiomegaly, and inflammation and increased the clearance of asymmetric dimethylarginine and trans-aconitate in renal failure, suggesting that drugs that upregulate SLCC1 may have therapeutic potential for patients with CKD.
Identification and characterization of novel rat and human gonad-specific organic anion transporters.
Northern blot analyses and in situ hybridization suggest that rat GST-1 and GST-2 might be one of the molecular entities responsible for transporting dehydroepiandrosterone sulfate and thyroid hormones involved in the regulation of sex steroid transportation and spermatogenesis in the gonad.
Epidermal FABP (FABP5) regulates keratinocyte differentiation by 13(S)-HODE-mediated activation of the NF-κB signaling pathway.
Fatty acid-binding proteins (FABPs) are postulated to serve as lipid shuttles that solubilize hydrophobic fatty acids and deliver them to appropriate intracellular sites. Epidermal FABP…
