Differential Inhibition by Cyclosporins of Primary-Active ATP-dependent Transporters in the Hepatocyte Canalicular Membrane

M Böhme et al. FEBS Lett.

Abstract

The distinct ATP-dependent transporters for taurocholate, leukotriene C4, and daunorubicin, studied in rat liver canalicular membrane vesicles, are sensitive to inhibition by cyclosporin A and its non-immunosuppressive analog PSC 833. Ki values for cyclosporin A were 0.2, 3.4 and 1.5 microM for the transport of taurocholate, leukotriene C4, and daunorubicin, respectively. The corresponding Ki values for PSC 833 were 0.6, 29, and 0.3 microM. Both inhibitors were competitive with respect to the three substrates. The cyclosporins serve as new and potent tools to interfere with different potency with the distinct ATP-dependent export carriers in the hepatocyte canalicular membrane.
