Disease relevance of SLCO2B1


High impact information on SLCO2B1

  • OATP-B also transported estrone-3-sulfate but not bile salts [3].
  • CONCLUSIONS: OATP-B is the third bromosulphophthalein uptake system localized at the basolateral membrane of human hepatocytes [3].
  • METHODS: Tissue distribution and hepatocellular localization of OATP-B were analyzed by Northern blotting and immunofluorescence, respectively [3].
  • Approximate K(i) values were 2 micromol/L for OATP-C, 3 micromol/L for OATP8, 3 micromol/L for OATP-B and 11 micromol/L for OATP-A [4].
  • Although the expression of some members of this group, such as organic anion transporting polypeptide (OATP)-A or C, is limited to special tissues (such as liver or brain), the organic anion transporting polypeptide 2B1 (OATPB/SLCO2B1) is expressed in many organs, including liver, placenta, mammary gland, brain, and intestine [5].
