Although acute renal failure (ARF) has been an area of extensive research in recent decades, our understanding of ARF is far from complete. Organic cations (OCs) are primarily excreted via vectorial transport by various renal organic cation transporters (OCTs). It is reasonable to assume that ARF may alter the expression profiles of these transporters. In a rat ARF model, induction of ARF by uranyl nitrate (UN) treatment significantly decreased the levels of Oct2 (slc22a2) mRNA and protein in…

Differential changes in functional activity of organic cation transporters in rats with uranyl nitrate-induced acute renal failure
TLDR
It is suggested that the induction of UN-ARF leads to an accumulation of endogenous organic cation(s), probably rOCT2 substrate(s) in the plasma, thereby affecting the TEMA pharmacokinetics and distribution to the kidneys in rats.
Reduced Antidiabetic Effect of Metformin and Down-regulation of Hepatic Oct1 in Rats with Ethynylestradiol-Induced Cholestasis
TLDR
The antidiabetic effect of metformin may be diminished in diabetic patients with EE cholestasis, due to impaired hepatic uptake of the drug via OCT1.
Plasma Membrane Cholesterol Regulates the Allosteric Binding of 1-Methyl-4-Phenylpyridinium to Organic Cation Transporter 2 (SLC22A2)
TLDR
It is suggested that changes in cellular cholesterol content can dramatically alter OCT2-mediated transport, potentially resulting in abnormal tubular secretion and unexpected drug toxicity and drug–drug interactions.

TLDR
The decrease in CLr of belotecan in folic acid-induced acute renal failure could, therefore, mainly be attributed to the down-regulation of Oat1 and Bcrp, in addition to the decrease in glomerular filtration rate.
A PET Tracer for Renal Organic Cation Transporters, 11C-Metformin: Radiosynthesis and Preclinical Proof-of-Concept Studies
TLDR
An 11C-metformin tracer was synthesized and PET studies in rats and pigs showed a rapid kidney uptake from the blood and excretion into the bladder similar to other radiopharmaceuticals developed for γ-camera renography.
Physiological and Pathophysiological Regulation of Transporters for Organic Cations
TLDR
In this chapter the manyfold regulation of OCTs, OCTNs, and MATEs from various mammals including humans is summarized and many studies on transporter regulation in very divers pathophysiological situations including several hepatic or renal diseases are discussed.
Altered functions and expressions of drug transporters in liver, kidney and intestine in disorders of local and remote organs: possible role of oxidative stress in the pathogenesis
TLDR
Various ATP binding cassette and solute carrier transporter expressions were up- or down-regulated in remote organs as well as in the local organ of diseases when these organs were injured, at least in part by oxidative stress, suggesting that oxidative stress is a factor affecting the expression and function of drug transporters.

Down-regulation of rat organic cation transporter rOCT2 by 5/6 nephrectomy.
TLDR
The levels of urinary excretion of cationic drugs, especially substrates for rOct2, were reduced under CRF partly due to the reduced expression of rOCT2, and the lowered plasma level of testosterone was suggested to be responsible for the depressed rO CT2 expression in CRF.
Functional characteristics and steroid hormone-mediated regulation of an organic cation transporter in Madin-Darby canine kidney cells.
TLDR
The data demonstrate that steroid hormones induce the transcription of OCT2 in the kidney and indicate that MDCK can serve as a useful and convenient tool in screening candidate drugs for interaction with OCT2 and for studying the regulation of this transporter.

TLDR
Two etiologically different models of experimental acute renal failure were induced in rats by administration of either glycerol or uranyl nitrate, suggesting that the tubular transport was preferentially affected by uranyl Nitrate and that the selective competitive inhibition of PAH secretion by the accumulation of naturally occurring organic acids may be due to the selectivecompetitive inhibition of natural organic acids.
Moment analysis of drug disposition in kidney. III: Transport of p-aminohippurate and tetraethylammonium in the perfused kidney isolated from uranyl nitrate-induced acute renal failure rats.
TLDR
It is suggested that impairment by uranyl nitrate-induced ARF appears at the carrier-mediated transport process of the epithelial cell membranes for both organic anions and cations.
Deficiency in the Organic Cation Transporters 1 and 2 (Oct1/Oct2 [Slc22a1/Slc22a2]) in Mice Abolishes Renal Secretion of Organic Cations
TLDR
It is shown that Oct1 and Oct2 together are essential for renal secretion of (small) organic cations, and a deficiency in these proteins may result in increased drug sensitivity and toxicity.
Tissue distribution and renal developmental changes in rat organic cation transporter mRNA levels.
TLDR
OCT mRNA was detected primarily in kidney, and the high level of renal OCT expression may explain why the kidney is a target organ for xenobiotics with cationic properties.
Decreased Transport of p-Aminohippurate in Renal Basolateral Membranes Isolated from Rats with Acute Renal Failure
TLDR
Transport of D-glucose, p-aminohippurate, and tetraethylammonium was studied in the renal basolateral membrane vesicles isolated from rats with acute renal failure and it is suggested that organic anion transport is decreased in renal Basolateral membranes from ARF rats.
Estimation of renal secretory function for organic cations by endogenous N1-methylnicotinamide in rats with experimental renal failure
TLDR
CLscn(NMN) is proposed to be used as an index to assess renal tubular function for the secretion of organic cations that are excreted by both filtration and secretion without reabsorption.
Androgen Receptor is Responsible for Rat Organic Cation Transporter 2 Gene Regulation but not for rOCT1 and rOCT3
TLDR
This is the first study to address the transcriptional mechanisms of testosterone-dependent gene regulation of the Slc22 family through the AR-mediated transcriptional pathway of organic cation transporters 1–3.
