A study of the mechanism of transport of diphenylhydantoin in the rat submaxillary gland in vitro

The Journal of Pharmacology and Experimental Therapeutics

In vitro studies performed on rat submaxillary gland slices with diphenylhydantoin (6 X 10(-6) M) showed that variations of extracellular pH (pHe) had no significant effects on uptake and only slight effects on efflux (lowering the pHe slightly decreased efflux rates, whereas increasing pHe slightly increased efflux rates). Increasing diphenylhydantoin concentration significantly decreased uptake and slightly increased the rate of efflux. Uptake of 14C-diphenylhydantoin was significantly decreased when compared to control conditions (pH 7.40, 37 degrees C, 100% O2 aeration, 6 X 10(-6) M) by the following alterations: aeration of the incubation medium with N2 instead of O2, decrease of bath temperature from 37 degrees C to 5 degrees C and addition of the following metabolic inhibitors: iodoacetic acid (10(-3)M), 2,4-dinitrophenol (10(-3)M) and cyanide (10(-3)M). Probenecid (10(-3)M) had no significant effect on diphenylhydantoin uptake when compared to control values. No evidence of salivary biotransformation of diphenylhydantoin was seen in the in vitro system using thin-layer chromatography. These in vitro data suggest an active transport process that is concentration-dependent with a possible saturable binding site on the mem...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Bone Marrow Neoplasms

Bone Marrow Neoplasms are cancers that occur in the bone marrow. Discover the latest research on Bone Marrow Neoplasms here.

IGA Glomerulonephritis

IgA glomerulonephritis is a chronic form of glomerulonephritis characterized by deposits of predominantly Iimmunoglobin A in the mesangial area. Discover the latest research on IgA glomerulonephritis here.

Cryogenic Electron Microscopy

Cryogenic electron microscopy (Cryo-EM) allows the determination of biological macromolecules and their assemblies at a near-atomic resolution. Here is the latest research.

STING Receptor Agonists

Stimulator of IFN genes (STING) are a group of transmembrane proteins that are involved in the induction of type I interferon that is important in the innate immune response. The stimulation of STING has been an active area of research in the treatment of cancer and infectious diseases. Here is the latest research on STING receptor agonists.

LRRK2 & Immunity During Infection

Mutations in the LRRK2 gene are a risk-factor for developing Parkinson’s disease. However, LRRK2 has been shown to function as a central regulator of vesicular trafficking, infection, immunity, and inflammation. Here is the latest research on the role of this kinase on immunity during infection.

Antiphospholipid Syndrome

Antiphospholipid syndrome or antiphospholipid antibody syndrome (APS or APLS), is an autoimmune, hypercoagulable state caused by the presence of antibodies directed against phospholipids.

Meningococcal Myelitis

Meningococcal myelitis is characterized by inflammation and myelin damage to the meninges and spinal cord. Discover the latest research on meningococcal myelitis here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

Variants within membrane-spanning 4-domains subfamily A (MS4A) gene cluster have recently been implicated in Alzheimer's disease by recent genome-wide association studies. Here is the latest research.
