Organic Anion Transporting Polypeptides of the OATP/SLCO Superfamily: Identification of New Members in Nonmammalian Species, Comparative Modeling and a Potential Transport Mode

Abstract

Organic anion-transporting polypeptides (human, OATPs; other animals, Oatps; gene symbol, SLCO/Slco) form a transport protein superfamily that mediates the translocation of amphipathic substrates across the plasma membrane of animal cells. So far, OATPs/Oatps have been identified in human, rat and mouse tissues. In this study, we used bioinformatic tools to… (More)
