Glycyrrhizin exerts protective effects in rats with NS, reducing the excretion of Upr, Ch, BUN, sCr, and mean arterial blood pressure, and also decreasing expression of LN, FN, Col, TGFbeta1 and CTGF in the cortex of the kidney. Expand


Molecular cloning of canalicular multispecific organic anion transporter defective in EHBR.
Because EHBR and TR- are allelic mutants and both strains exhibit an autosomal recessive inheritance in the biliary excretion of organic anions it was concluded that the impaired expression of this particular protein is related to the pathogenesis of hyperbilirubinemia in the mutant animals. Expand
3-Monoglucuronyl-glycyrrhetinic acid is a major metabolite that causes licorice-induced pseudoaldosteronism.
3MGA was found to be a potent inhibitor of 11 beta-hydroxysteroid dehydrogenase, allowing cortisol to exert its full mineralocorticoid effects and suggesting that licorice-induced pseudoaldosteronism is due to an increased concentration of 3MGA in the circulating blood of these patients. Expand
Physiologically based pharmacokinetic modeling indicated that the transit rate of gastrointestinal contents through the small and large intestines predominantly determines to what extent glycyrrhetic acid conjugates will be reabsorbed, which may serve as a useful risk estimator for glycyrrhizic-acid-induced adverse effects.

Results showed the metabolic pathways of GL to be of two types: a beta-D-glucuronidase hydrolyzing GL to GA, and the other consisting of two different beta-Ds hydrolyzed GL to GAMG and GAMG to GA. Expand
Licorice-induced pseudoaldosteronism. Hypertension, hypokalemia, aldosteronopenia, and suppressed plasma renin activity.
Licorice-induced hypertension serves a model of hypertensive disease developing as the result of ingestion of a foodstuff possessing sodium retaining activity. Expand
Inchinkoto, a herbal medicine, and its ingredients dually exert Mrp2/MRP2-mediated choleresis and Nrf2-mediated antioxidative action in rat livers.
Findings provide the rationale for therapeutic options of ICKT and its ingredients that should potentiate bilirubin disposal in vivo by enhancing Mrp2/MRP2- mediated secretory capacities in both livers and kidneys as well as Nrf2-mediated antioxidative actions in the treatment of cholestatic liver diseases associated with jaundice.

A possible involvement of 3-monoglucuronyl-glycyrrhetinic acid, a metabolite of glycyrrhizin (GL), in GL-induced pseudoaldosteronism.
Accumulation of 3MGA may be involved in the pathogenesis of pseudoaldosteronism induced by chronic GL treatment, and it is clinically recommended to avoid a combination treatment of GL and furosemide. Expand
Telmisartan prevents hepatic fibrosis and enzyme-altered lesions in liver cirrhosis rat induced by a choline-deficient L-amino acid-defined diet.
Tel prevented liver fibrogenesis and pre-neoplastic lesions by down-regulating TGFbeta1 and TIMP-1, 2 and increasing MMP-13 expression and suggested that Tel could be a promising drug for NASH related liver fibrosis. Expand

It was suggested that patient age and dosing period of SKT might be risk factors for developing pseudoaldosteronism or hypokalemia as well as coadministration of drugs inducing hypkalemia. Expand
Genipin enhances Mrp2 (Abcc2)‐mediated bile formation and organic anion transport in rat liver
In conclusion, genipin may enhance the bile acid‐independent secretory capacity of hepatocytes, mainly by stimulation of exocytosis and insertion of Mrp2 in the biliary canaliculi. Expand
