Introduction Structure Location and functions Substrates and inhibitors Important interactions Future trends Conclusion
Transporters are membrane proteins Control the influx of essential nutrients and ions and the efflux of cellular waste, toxins and drugs Controls cellular homeostasis
Transporters in body ATP binding cassette Solute carrier (ABC) (SLC) - Primary active transporters (rely on ATP hydrolysis) 49 known genes for ABC proteins (7 families - ABCA to ABCG) P-glycoprotein (P-gp, encoded by ABCB1, also termed MDR1) - Facilitated transporters and ion-coupled secondary active transporters (antiport) - 300 transporters (43 families – SLC1-SLC43) Drug targets, drug absorption and disposition SERT (serotonin transporter, SLC6A4) DAT (dopamine transporter, SLC6A3)
1) Pharmacokinetic – Absorption, metabolism, excretion of drugs 1. Located in intestinal, renal, and hepatic epithelium 2. Selective absorption and elimination of endogenous substances and xenobiotics, including drugs 3. Work in concert with drug metabolizing enzymes 4. Tissue specific drug distribution 5. Protective barriers to particular organs and cell types
2) Pharmacodynamics – Target for many drugs - SERT (SLC6A4), serotonin transporter - DAT (SLC6A3), dopamine transporter 3) Drug resistance - Anticancer drugs (BCRP (ABCG2)) - Antiviral agents (MRP4 (ABCC4))
- Most important member of ABC family - Transmembrane protein coded by MDR-1 gene - Functions to actively pump a diverse array of xenobiotics out of the cells in which it is expressed - Display a high level of constitutive (basal) ATPase activity, which is observed in the absence of added drugs
First described in 1976, by JULIANO & LING in Chinese hamster ovary cells selected in culture for colchicines resistance PULLIAM et al. in 1985 discovered the particular increased penetration of ivermectin through the BBB resulting in 31-fold higher concentration of the drug in the brain than in the plasma in MDR knocked out mice
MICKISCH et al., 1991, found P-glycoprotein inhibition due to cyclosporine enhanced paclitaxel (Taxol) oral bioavailability
Single polypeptide Two homologous halves Each contains six transmembrane domains and a hydrophilic region with an ATP-binding domain
1) Epithelial cells of gastrointestinal tract Influx of essential nutrients and ions and efflux of cellular waste , drugs etc. Extensive overlap in the substrate specificities and tissue localization of P-gp and drug metabolizing enzyme in the cytochrome P450 (CYP3A4)
Lead to the hypothesis that these two proteins work together to protect the body from absorption of harmful xenobiotics, acting synergistically in the small intestine
2) Hepatocytes in liver Even if drug is absorbed it is expelled into bile, enters intestine again Work synergistically with CYP3A4 in liver
4) Tissues with barrier function Blood brain Blood testis Blood placenta limiting entry and accumulation of many drugs into the brain and contributing to the protective function of the central nervous system
5) Cancer cells Highly expressed, leading to efflux of anticancer agents from cells Resistance to these agents
Various classes of drugs Resulting in efflux of drug from body, lowering their plasma concentration
P-gp induction or inhibition may have a substantial effect on the pharmacokinetics and pharmacodynamics of concomitantly administered drugs that are substrates for this transporter.
Digoxin Absorption reduced due to co-administration of rifampicin (MDR1 inducer) Renal excretion retarded due to concurrent administration of MDR1 inhibitors (verapamil, quinidine etc.)
Loperamide Peripheral opioid for diarrhea, substrate for P-glycoprotein Co-administration of quinidine (MDR1 inhibitors) has caused marked respiratory depression
Protease inhibitors Ritonavir, Nelfinavir, Indinavir, Saquinavir substrates for P-glycoprotein P-gp transport at the intestinal and/or hepatic level limits the systemic bioavailability Poor penetration into the brain, testis Treatment ineffective and development of resistance faster
Anticancer agents MDR1 highly expressed in cancer cells, rendering resistant to anticancer agents Reduced bioavailability Paclitaxel, actinomycin D, vincristine etc. substrates for P-gp.
P-gp induction does not have a therapeutic role till date, P-gp inhibition is an attractive therapeutic approach to reverse multidrug resistance
Strategies to modulate P-gp function are being pursued actively in oncology reversal of multidrug resistance in tumours several newly developed agents that inhibit P-gp function are in phase I-III clinical trials. e.g. ONT 093 PSC 31665
Blockage of P-gp may be useful in facilitating greater intestinal absorption, bioavailability and penetration of protease inhibitors into HIV sanctuary sites as well as reduced excretion. Simplify protease inhibitor-containing regimens by reducing the oral doses of protease inhibitors and the frequency at which they are taken
MDR1 gene polymorphisms increases susceptibility to diseases such as Parkinson's disease, inflammatory bowel disease, multi-drug resistant epilepsy and renal carcinoma. MDR1 induction beneficial ???
P-glycoprotein encoded by MDR1 gene that influences drug pharmacokinetic and Pharmacodynamics P-gp inhibition is an attractive therapeutic approach to reverse multidrug resistance
