Disease relevance of ABCC2

  • METHODS: The expression and cellular localization of the wild-type and three kinds of reported SNP variants of MRP2 molecules were analyzed in LLC-PK1 cells after infection with the recombinant Tet-off adenoviruses [1].

High impact information on ABCC2


Anatomical context of ABCC2

  • Expression of ABC transporters such as P-glycoprotein, multidrug resistance-associated protein-1(MRP1), and MRP2 were compared by measuring messenger RNA (mRNA) levels in whole-brain tissue, isolated brain capillaries, and cultured cells [3].
  • In the LLC-PK(1) tubular renal cell line, a 15-day treatment with 25 microM rifampicin significantly increased the mRNA levels of P-glycoprotein, MRP1, MRP2, LRP and cytochrome P450 3A4 (CYP 3A4) [4].

Other interactions of ABCC2

  • In freshly isolated BCEC, mRNA levels of MRP2 and P-glycoprotein dropped by two- to sevenfold, respectively, whereas MRP1 mRNA levels were slightly increased [3].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of ABCC2

  • During cell culture, mRNA levels of MRP1 and MRP2 decreased by up to fivefold, while P-glycoprotein levels remained constant [3].
  • Western blot analysis confirmed a moderate increase in the expression of P-glycoprotein and MRP2, but not MRP1 also at the protein level [4].
