The biliary excretion of acenocoumarol in the rat: stereochemical aspects

The Journal of Pharmacy and Pharmacology
H H Thijssen, L G Baars


Within 24 h, 50% of a single dose of the acenocoumarol enantiomers was recovered in bile and 20% in urine of Wistar rats. The elimination products were mainly (greater than 90%) the 6- and 7-hydroxyacenocoumarol as conjugates in the bile but free in the urine. Only R-acenocoumarol, free and conjugated, was excreted in bile. There were no gross differences between the enantiomers in metabolic pattern or in the amount of metabolites formed. A significant difference was observed for the biliary excretion of the 7-hydroxy metabolite; the ratio of free and conjugated 7-hydroxyacenocoumarol was three times higher for the S- than for the R-isomer. An unknown third metabolite was recovered in bile in higher amounts with the S- than with the R-acenocoumarol. Only traces of this metabolite were recovered from urine. The data show an extensive biliary excretion of acenocoumarol and demonstrate stereoselective mechanisms in the excretion processes.

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.

Evolution of Pluripotency

Pluripotency refers to the ability of a cell to develop into three primary germ cell layers of the embryo. This feed focuses on the mechanisms that underlie the evolution of pluripotency. Here is the latest research.

Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection

Lipidomics can be used to examine the lipid species involved with pathogenic conditions, such as viral associated inflammation. Discovered the latest research on Lipidomics & Rhinovirus Infection.

Glut1 Deficiency

Glut1 deficiency, an autosomal dominant, genetic metabolic disorder associated with a deficiency of GLUT1, the protein that transports glucose across the blood brain barrier, is characterized by mental and motor developmental delays and infantile seizures.

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Alzheimer's Disease: MS4A

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

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.
