TRANSiPORT Human MATE1 (G) SLC Transporter Cells are HEK293 cells that transiently overexpress the OATP2B1 solute carrier (SLC) transport protein. Solute carriers are a super-family of membrane transporters that can affect pharmacokinetics and drug exposure by governing the transport of solutes in and out of cells. TheMATE1 SLC transporter protein is found in hepatocytes.
• Assess potential for transporter-mediated drug metabolism • Easy-to-use format • Obtain high-quality results with a large signal-to-noise ratio
Choice of measurement system Cell-based assays can be performed using radioisotope-labeled compounds, fluorescence-labeled compounds, or non-labeled compounds. The amount of substrate transported into the cells can be measured directly using a liquid scintillation counter, fluorescence plate reader, or LC-MS/MS, thereby allowing direct evaluation of SLC transporter activity.
Assay reliability Mock (G) SLC Transporter Cells (Cat. No. GM1101G) that do not overexpress the SLC transporter are available for use as a negative experimental control. Some compounds may demonstrate high background levels of transport due to the presence of endogenous transporters or non-specific binding.
Rapid results The convenient product format enables data generation in two days from thawing of the cells to final results.
