Organic anion transporting polypeptides (Oatp) mediate the transport of a wide variety of amphipathic organic substrates. Rat Oatp1b2 and human OATP1B3 are members of a liver-specific subfamily of Oatps/OATPs. We investigated whether prolactin (PRL) and growth hormone (GH) regulated Oatp1b2 and OATP1B3 gene expression via signal transducers and activators of transcription 5 (Stat5). Binding sites for Stat5 transcription factors were located in the promoters of Oatp1b2 and OATP1B3 at -209 to… CONTINUE READING
