The orphan transporter hORCTL3 (human organic cation transporter like 3; SLC22A13) is highly expressed in kidneys and to a weaker extent in brain, heart, and intestine. hORCTL3-expressing Xenopus laevis oocytes showed uptake of [(3)H]nicotinate, [(3)H]p-aminohippurate, and [(14)C]urate. Hence, hORCTL3 is an organic anion transporter, and we renamed it(More)
Organic anions are taken up from the blood into proximal tubule cells by organic anion transporters 1 and 3 (OAT1 and OAT3) in exchange for dicarboxylates. The released dicarboxylates are recycled by the sodium dicarboxylate cotransporter 3 (NaDC3). In this study, we tested the substrate specificities of human NaDC3, OAT1, and OAT3 to identify those(More)
Phylogentically, organic anion transporter (OAT)1 and OAT3 are closely related, whereas OAT2 is more distant. Experiments with human embryonic kidney-293 cells stably transfected with human OAT1, OAT2, or OAT3 were performed to compare selected transport properties. Common to OAT1, OAT2, and OAT3 is their ability to transport cGMP. OAT2 interacted with(More)
Inhibition of Na+/H+ exchange (NHE) subtypes has been investigated in a study of the mouse fibroblast L cell line (LAP1) transfected with human (h) NHE1, rabbit (rb) NHE2, rat (rt) or human (h) NHE3 as well as an opossum kidney cell line (OK) and porcine renal brush-border membrane vesicles (BBMV). S3226(More)
p-Aminohippurate (PAH) and urate are secreted into the proximal tubule lumen across the brush-border membrane. Here we used brush-border membrane vesicles from pig kidney to study PAH and urate transport. Efflux and influx of [3H]PAH were influenced by K+-diffusion potentials indicating electrogenic PAH transport. An outside>inside PAH concentration(More)
A pig kidney cDNA library was screened for the porcine ortholog of the multispecific organic anion transporter 1 (pOAT1). Several positive clones were isolated resulting in two alternatively spliced cDNA clones of pOAT1 (pOAT1 and pOAT1A). pOAT1-cDNAs consist of 2126 or 1895 base pairs (EMBL Acc. No. AJ308234 and AJ308235) encoding 547 or 533 amino acid(More)
Tubular reabsorption of sulfate is achieved by the sodium-dependent sulfate transporter, NaSi-1, located at the apical membrane, and the sulfate-anion exchanger, sat-1, located at the basolateral membrane. To delineate the physiological role of rat sat-1, [(35)S]sulfate and [(14)C]oxalate uptake into sat-1-expressing oocytes was determined under various(More)
Although the sulfate/anion transporter (sat-1; SLC26A1) was isolated from a rat liver cDNA library by expression cloning, localization of sat-1 within the liver and its contribution to the transport of sulfate and organo sulfates have remained unresolved. In situ hybridization and immunohistochemical studies were undertaken to demonstrate the localization(More)
The sulfate anion transporter (sat-1, Slc26a1) has been cloned from rat liver, functionally characterized, and localized to the sinusoidal membrane in hepatocytes and basolateral membrane (BLM) in proximal tubules (PT). Here, we confirm previously described localization of sat-1 protein in rat liver and kidneys and report on gender differences (GD) in its(More)
With the cloning of pig renal organic anion transporter 1 (pOAT1) (Biochimie 84 (2002) 1219) we set up a model system for comparative studies of cloned and natively isolated membrane located transport proteins. Meanwhile, another transport protein involved in p-aminohippurate (PAH) uptake on the basolateral side of the proximal tubule cells was identified,(More)
