Rectal Absorption of Vigabatrin, a Substrate of the Proton Coupled Amino Acid Transporter (PAT1, Slc36a1), in Rats


To investigate the rectal absorption of vigabatrin in rats, based on the hypothesis that PAT1 (Slc36a1) is involved. Male Sprague–Dawley rats were dosed rectally with five different gels, varying in buffer capacity, the amount of vigabatrin, and co-administration of proline or tryptophan. Western blotting was used to detect rPAT1 in rat rectal epithelium. X… (More)
