6-Mercaptopurine (6-MP) is a main component of childhood acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) treatment. Some candidate gene variants are associated with its toxicities, but the major variants and effects of combined variants remain unclear. We used Cox regression analysis to evaluate the time-dependent association between candidate variants and the cumulative incidence of 6-MP intolerability in 95 Japanese patients. The major risk factors for severe leukopenia were ABCC4 rs3765534, NUDT15 rs116855232 and rs186364861 in multi-covariate analysis (P<0...

Objective There is no evidence for genetic association of the organic anion transporters (OAT) 1-3 (SLC22A6, SLC22A7, SLC22A8) and multi-drug resistance protein 4 (MRP4; ABCC4) with serum urate or gout. The Māori and Pacific (Polynesian) population of New Zealand (NZ) has the highest prevalence of gout worldwide. Our aim was to determine if there were any Polynesian population-specific genetic variants in the SLC22A6-8 and ABCC4 genes associated with gout. Participants and Methods All participants had ≥3 self-reported Māori and/or Pacific grandparents...

BACKGROUND: Strategies to maintain BBB integrity in diseases with a hypoxia/reoxygenation (H/R) component involve preventing glutathione (GSH) loss from endothelial cells. GSH efflux transporters include multidrug resistance proteins (Mrps). Therefore, characterization of Mrp regulation at the BBB during H/R is required to advance these transporters as therapeutic targets. Our goal was to investigate, in vivo, regulation of Abcc1, Abcc2, and Abcc4 mRNA expression (i.e., genes encoding Mrp isoforms that transport GSH) by nuclear factor E2-related factor (Nrf2) using a well-established H/R model...

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory responses in HIV (+) patients may be exacerbated due to reports of subclinical endotoxemia and existing immune dysregulation. As inflammation has been reported to mediate changes in the expression of transporters, this could be potentiated in pregnant HIV (+) women. Similar to humans, the HIV-Tg rat model develops immune dysregulation and chronic AIDS-like conditions. Our objective was to examine the expression of placental drug transporters in HIV-Tg rats in response to low-dose endotoxin...

ALDH16A1 is a novel member of the ALDH superfamily that is enzymatically-inactive and highly expressed in the kidney. Recent studies identified an association between a rare missense single nucleotide variant (SNV) in the ALDH16A1 gene and elevated serum uric acid levels and gout. The present study explores the mechanisms by which ALDH16A1 influences uric acid homeostasis in the kidney. We generated and validated a mouse line with global disruption of the Aldh16a1 gene through gene targeting and performed RNA-seq analyses in the kidney of wild-type (WT) and Aldh16a1 knockout (KO) mice, along with plasma metabolomics...

Over the last 25 years, our understanding of the driving forces for hepatobiliary elimination and knowledge of the molecular basis of uptake and efflux transport in hepatocytes have undergone fundamental changes. This refers to bile acids and many other endogenous substances as well as to drugs that are eliminated on the hepatobiliary route. In this development, not only molecular cloning, functional characterization, and localization of transporters were decisive, but also the discovery of hereditary mutations in genes encoding sinusoidal uptake transporters and canalicular export pumps in humans and rodents...

R-flurbiprofen is the non-COX-inhibiting enantiomer of flurbiprofen and is not converted to S-flurbiprofen in human cells. Nevertheless, it reduces extracellular prostaglandin E₂ (PGE₂) in cancer or immune cell cultures and human extracellular fluid. Here, we show that R-flurbiprofen acts through a dual mechanism: (i) it inhibits the translocation of cPLA2α to the plasma membrane and thereby curtails the availability of arachidonic acid and (ii) R-flurbiprofen traps PGE₂ inside of the cells by inhibiting multidrug resistance-associated protein 4 (MRP4, ABCC4), which acts as an outward transporter for prostaglandins...

BACKGROUND: Azathioprine (AZA) is a first-line drug in treating neuromyelitis optica spectrum disorders (NMOSD). To exhibit its bioactivity, AZA needs to be converted to thiopurine nucleotides (TPNs) including 6-thioguanine nucleotides (6-TGNs) and 6-methylmercaptopurine nucleotides (6-MMPNs) that are affected by genetic polymorphisms. This study aims to develop an LC-MS/MS method for the analysis of erythrocyte concentrations of TPNs and to evaluate their associations with variants of various genes (MTHFR, TPMT, HLA, SLC29A1, SLC28A2, SLC28A3, ABCB1 and ABCC4) in patients with NMOSD...

BACKGROUND: The Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway plays a crucial role in embryonic development, tissue homeostasis, wound healing and malignant transformation in different organs including the liver. The consequences of continuous β-catenin signaling in hepatocytes remain elusive. RESULTS: Livers of Ctnnb1CA hep mice were characterized by disturbed liver architecture, proliferating cholangiocytes and biliary type of fibrosis. Serum ALT and bile acid levels were significantly increased in Ctnnb1CA hep mice...

The HIV/HBV coinfection is likely associated with increased risk of kidney disease, due to the additional factors that may affect renal function in the HIV population. We aimed to evaluate renal toxicity in HIV/HBV and HBV monoinfected patients on long-term therapy with tenofovir (TDF) and to explore the association of polymorphisms in ATP-binding cassette (ABCC)2, ABCC4, ABCC10 with the development of renal dysfunction. From September 2006 to November 2014, 44 HIV/HBV co-infected and 34 HBV monoinfected patients were commenced on TDF...

Objective: Prostaglandins (PGs) function in various reproductive processes, including luteolysis, maternal pregnancy recognition, conceptus development, and parturition. Our earlier study has shown that PG transporters ABCC4 and SLCO2A1 are expressed in the uterine endometrium in pigs. Since several other PG transporters such as ABCC1, ABCC9, SLCO4C1, and SLCO5A1 are known to be present in the uterine endometrium, this study investigated the expression of these PG transporters in the porcine uterine endometrium and placenta...

The multidrug resistance protein 4 (MRP4/ABCC4) has been identified as an important transporter for signalling molecules including cyclic nucleotides and several lipid mediators in platelets and may thus represent a novel target to interfere with platelet function. Besides its localisation in the plasma membrane, MRP4 has been also detected in the membrane of dense granules in resting platelets. In polarised cells it is localised at the basolateral or apical plasma membrane. To date, the mechanism of MRP4 trafficking has not been elucidated; protein interactions may regulate both the localisation and function of this transporter...

Development of taxane resistance has become clinically very important issue. The molecular mechanisms underlying the resistance are still unclear. To address this issue, we established paclitaxel-resistant sublines of the SK-BR-3 and MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines that are capable of long-term proliferation in 100nM and 300nM paclitaxel, respectively. Application of these concentrations leads to cell death in the original counterpart cells. Both sublines are cross-resistant to doxorubicin, indicating the presence of the MDR phenotype...

Broad inter-individual variation exists in susceptibility to arsenic-induced tumours, likely involving differences in the ability of individuals to eliminate this metalloid. We recently identified human multidrug resistance protein 4 (MRP4/ABCC4) as a novel pathway for the cellular export of dimethylarsinic acid (DMA(V)), the major urinary arsenic metabolite in humans, and the diglutathione conjugate of the highly toxic monomethylarsonous acid [MMA(GS)2]. These findings, together with the basolateral and apical membrane localization of MRP4 in hepatocytes and renal proximal tubule cells, respectively, suggest a role for MRP4 in the urinary elimination of hepatic arsenic metabolites...

OBJECTIVES: Methotrexate (MTX), the key drug in childhood B-cell acute lymphoblastic leukemia (B-ALL) therapy, often causes toxicity. An association between genetic variants in MTX transport genes and toxicity has been found. It is known that these transporters are regulated by microRNAs (miRNAs), and miRNA single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) interfere with miRNA levels or function. With regard to B-cell ALL, we have previously found rs56103835 in miR-323b that targets ABCC4 associated with MTX plasma levels...

Abcc4 gene codes for a protein (ABCC4) involved in the transportation of different classes of drugs outside the cells. Various important drugs transported by ABCC4 include antiviral and anticancer drugs as well as endogenous molecules such as bile acids, cyclic nucleotides, folates, prostaglandins and steroids. Alternative splicing generates multiple mRNAs that encode protein isoforms having diverse functions. In this study, we have identified a novel transcript of mouse Abcc4 gene using a combination of bioinformatics and molecular biology techniques...

Flutamide (FLU), an oral, nonsteroidal antiandrogen drug used in the treatment of prostate cancer, is associated with idiosyncratic hepatotoxicity that sometimes causes severe liver damage, including cholestasis, jaundice, and liver necrosis. To understand the mechanism of toxicity, a combination of aryl hydrocarbon receptor (Ahr)-deficient (Ahr(-/-)) mice, primary hepatocytes, luciferase reporter gene assays, in silico ligand docking and ultra-performance chromatography-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry-based metabolomics was used...

The current staging system for non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) is inadequate for predicting outcome. Risk score, a linear combination of the values for the expression of each gene multiplied by a weighting value which was estimated from univariate Cox proportional hazard regression, can be useful. The aim of this study is to analyze survival-related genes with TaqMan Low-Density Array (TLDA) and risk score to explore gene-signature in lung cancer. A total of 96 NSCLC specimens were collected and randomly assigned to a training (n = 48) or a testing cohort (n = 48)...
