Hepatobiliary disposition of the metabolically stable opioid peptide [D-Pen2, D-Pen5]-enkephalin (DPDPE): pharmacokinetic consequences of the interplay between multiple transport systems.

Abstract

[D-Pen2,D-Pen5]-Enkephalin (DPDPE) is excreted extensively into the bile. Although DPDPE is transported by P-glycoprotein (P-gp), multidrug resistance-associated protein 2 (Mrp2) has been identified as an important mechanism for DPDPE transport across the canalicular membrane of the hepatocyte. The present studies determined the relative impact of Mrp2 and… (More)
