Drugs are transferred from the plasma into the bile through the hepatocytes. This transport is due to active secretion of drugs into the bile by means of transport systems: e. g. the organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATPs), the P-glycoprotein transport system and the multidrug resistance-associated proteins (Mrps). The latter are important for the excretion of conjugated metabolites.

We have previously identified the cancer-type organic anion transporting polypeptide 1B3 (Ct-OATP1B3) mRNA in several human colon and lung cancer tissues. Ct-OATP1B3 is a variant of the liver-type OATP1B3 (Lt-OATP1B3) mRNA, which is a hepatocyte plasma membrane transporter with broad substrate specificity. However, in cancer tissues, both the detailed characteristics of Ct-OATP1B3 mRNA expression and its biological functions remain unclear.
An exception occurs with SLC family 21 (the organic anion transporting polypeptide.
