Renal proximal and distal tubules are highly polarized epithelial cells that carry out the specialized directional transport of various solutes. This renal function, which is essential for homeostasis in the body, is achieved through the close pairing of apical and basolateral carriers expressed in the renal epithelial cells. The family of organic anion transporters (OATs), which belong to the major facilitator superfamily (SLC22A), are expressed in the renal epithelial cells to regulate the… Expand

TLDR
Renal proximal and distal tubules carry out specialized directional transport of various solutes and hint at various pathogenic roles of OAT‐mediated transport of uremic toxins. Expand
Renal Organic Anion Transporters (SLC22 Family): Expression, Regulation, Roles in Toxicity, and Impact on Injury and Disease
TLDR
This review will provide an overview of the OATs for which transport activity has been demonstrated and expression/function in the kidney observed, and examples establishing a role for renal Oats in drug clearance, food/drug–drug interactions, and renal injury and pathology are presented. Expand
In vitro and in vivo evidence of the importance of organic anion transporters (OATs) in drug therapy.
TLDR
For all transporters, information on cloning, tissue distribution, factors influencing OAT abundance, interaction with endogenous compounds and different drug classes, drug/drug interactions and, if known, single nucleotide polymorphisms is provided. Expand
Organic Anion Transporters and Their Implications in Pharmacotherapy
TLDR
Current knowledge of the molecular function and substrate profile of cloned organic anion transporters is summarized and recent progress in the understanding of the impact of interindividual variability, transcriptional regulation, and tissue distribution on individual drug response is discussed. Expand
Drug transport by Organic Anion Transporters (OATs).
TLDR
Based on IC₅₀ values reported in the literature, OAT1 and OAT3 show comparable affinities for diuretics, cephalosporins, and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs whereas OAT2 has a lower affinity to most of these compounds. Expand
Physiology, structure, and regulation of the cloned organic anion transporters
TLDR
This review summarizes current knowledge of the properties and functional roles of the cloned OATs, the relationships between transporter structure and function, and those factors that determine the efficacy of transport, as well as investigating the nature and consequences of transporter regulation at genomic and intracellular sites.

Human renal organic anion transporter 4 operates as an asymmetric urate transporter.
Human organic anion transporter 4 (hOAT4) is located at the apical membrane of proximal tubule cells and involved in renal secretion and reabsorption of endogenous substances as well as many drugsExpand
New insights into renal transport of urate
TLDR
Current evidence is insufficient to fully understand the precise mechanism governing the bi-directional transport of urate, so a new concept of renal urate transport is proposed: urate-transporting multimolecular complex, or ‘urate transportsome’. Expand
Transcriptional regulation of organic anion transporting polypeptide SLCO4C1 as a new therapeutic modality to prevent chronic kidney disease.
Uremic toxins accumulate in patients with chronic kidney diseases (CKDs) and cause further progression of renal damage and cardiovascular diseases. Recently, it was reported that some of the organicExpand

Novel aspects of renal organic anion transporters
TLDR
It is hypothesized here that organic anion transporters might impact renal susceptibility to ischemia and toxic injury, because their uptake of substrates can result in the efflux of Krebs cycle intermediates, an important nutrient source for the proximal tubule. Expand
The multispecific organic anion transporter (OAT) family
TLDR
The OAT family represents the renal secretory pathway fororganic anions and is also involved in the distribution of organic anions in the body. Expand

TLDR
The data indicate that OAT3 does not represent a uniporter but operates as an organic ion%dicarboxylate exchanger similar to OAT1, and may mediate renal urate secretion. Expand

TLDR
A similar spatiotemporal pattern of mRNA expression of the OATs (OAT1-4) during kidney development suggests that OAT genes may be useful in understanding the mechanisms of proximal tubule maturation. Expand

This study demonstrates the role of rat organic anion transporters (rOATs) in the transport of IS and the induction of its nephrotoxicity and suggests that rOAT1 and rOat3 play an important role in the transcellular transport ofIS. Expand
Human organic anion transporter 4 is a renal apical organic anion/dicarboxylate exchanger in the proximal tubules.

OAT4 is an apical organic anion/dicarboxylate exchanger and mainly functions as a apical pathway for the reabsorption of some organic anions in renal proximal tubules driven by an outwardly directed dicar boxylate gradient. Expand

Defect mutations of transporters of the SLC22 family may cause specific diseases such as "primary systemic carnitine deficiency" or "idiopathic renal hypouricemia" or change drug absorption or excretion. Expand

Results suggest that probenecid, 8-(noradamantan-3-yl)-1,3-dipropylxanthine, and betamipron, but not cilastatin, could inhibit hOAT4-mediated ES uptake in vitro, whereas probenECid alone could inhibit the hOat2-mediated PGF(2alpha) uptake. Expand
