Stereoselectivity and species difference in plasma protein binding of KE-298 and its metabolites.

In vitro protein binding of KE-298 and its plasma metabolites, deacetyl-KE-298 (M-1) and S-methyl-KE-298 (M-2), was high in rat (>97%), dog (>89%) and human plasma (>99%), respectively. Human serum albumin (>93%) was the main protein involved in the binding to plasma proteins, while the binding to human serum globulins was low (16-33%). The binding of KE… (More)
