We have cloned a murine member of the organic-anion-transporting polypeptide (Oatp) family of membrane-transport proteins from mouse liver. The cloned cDNA insert of 2783 bp with an open reading frame of 2011 bp codes for a 12-transmembrane 670-amino-acid protein with highest amino acid identity with the rat Oatp1. When expressed in Xenopus laevis oocytes, the mouse Oatp exhibited the same substrate specificity as the rat Oatp1. Besides the common Oatp substrates bromosulphophthalein… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Cloning, expression, and ontogeny of mouse organic anion-transporting polypeptide-5, a kidney-specific organic anion transporter.
Analysis of the 5'-untranslated region (5'-UTR) of Oatp-5 cDNA through capsite cloning reveals two possible transcription start sites that are 4-bp apart, indicating the possibility that mRNAs with different 3-UTR lengths may coexist.
Expression, transport properties, and chromosomal location of organic anion transporter subtype 3.
Transport and expression properties suggest that rat oatp3 mediates the anion exchange-driven absorption of bile acids previously described for the proximal small intestine.
Genomic organization and tissue-specific expression of splice variants of mouse organic anion transporting polypeptide 2.
Northern-blot hybridization analysis using the exon 3-specific probes demonstrated that mouse oatp2 mRNA containingExon 3 sequence is expressed in heart and lung, whereas exon 1-, 2-, and 17- specific probes detected mRNA only in brain and liver.
Full-length cDNA cloning and genomic organization of the mouse liver-specific organic anion transporter-1 (lst-1).
The structural organization of the mouse lst-1 gene is reported as the first evidence for the structure of a gene encoding an lst, and 5'-Rapid Amplification of cDNA Ends (RACE) analyses demonstrate three splice variant mRNAs involving the noncoding exon 2 and exon 3.
Organic anion transporting polypeptides of the OATP/SLC21 family: phylogenetic classification as OATP/SLCO superfamily, new nomenclature and molecular/functional properties
All Oatps/OATPs are newly classified within the OATP/SLCO superfamily and subdivided into families, subfamilies and individual genes and gene products according to their phylogenetic relationships and chronology of identification.
Characterization of organic anion-transporting polypeptide (Oatp) 1a1 and 1a4 null mice reveals altered transport function and urinary metabolomic profiles.
Organic anion-transporting polypeptides (Oatp) 1a1 and 1a4 were deleted by homologous recombination, and mice were characterized for Oatp expression in liver and kidney, transport in isolated
Data on the tissue distribution and ontogenic expression of mouse Oatps will aid in understanding the pharmacokinetics and toxicokinetics of drugs and other chemicals.
Characterization of organic anion transporting polypeptide 1b2-null mice: essential role in hepatic uptake/toxicity of phalloidin and microcystin-LR.
Oatp1b2-null mice display altered basic physiology and markedly decreased hepatic uptake/toxicity of phalloidin and microcystin-LR, a blue-green algae toxin, and are useful in elucidating the role of Oatp 1b2 and its human orthologs OATP1B1/1B3 in hepatics uptake and systemic disposition of toxic chemicals and therapeutic drugs.


Identification of thyroid hormone transporters.
H hepatic uptake of thyroid hormones and their metabolites is mediated at least in part by Ntcp and oatp1, and this suggests that thyroid hormone action and metabolism are intracellular events that require transport of the hormone across the plasma membrane.
