Enhanced delivery of drugs to the liver by adenovirus-mediated heterologous expression of the human oligopeptide transporter PEPT1.


To explore the feasibility of drug delivery to the liver by the use of adenovirus-mediated human oligopeptide transporter (hPEPT1) gene transfer, we examined the accumulation of L-[(3)H]carnosine in the hepatoma cell line (HepG2 and WIFB9) and mouse liver. We constructed a recombinant adenovirus encoding hPEPT1-enhanced yellow fluorescent protein (EYFP… (More)
