ABSTRACT

The purpose of the present study was to evaluate and compare the absolute protein expression levels of 28 drug-related transporters in Caco-2 cell monolayers cultured for 2, 3, and 4 weeks. Plasma membrane fractions of Caco-2 cells cultured on Transwell inserts for 2, 3 and 4 weeks were prepared and digested with trypsin, and then simultaneous absolute quantification of 28 transporters and Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase was conducted using our established quantitative targeted absolute proteomic technique. Nine transporters and Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase were detected. MDR1, BCRP, PEPT1, OSTα and OSTβ were highly expressed (greater than 1 fmol/μg protein), while MRP2, MRP4, OATP2B1 and MCT1 were moderately expressed (0.328-0.871 fmol/μg protein). No significant difference was observed in the protein expression levels of these transporters or Na(+)/K(+)-ATPase among the 2-, 3- and 4-week cultures. The other 19 transporters, including MRP1, MRP3, OATP1A2, OATP3A1, OATP4A1, and OATP1B3, were not detected. This information about the rank order of transporter protein expression will be useful to predict what transporter(s) are likely or unlikely to influence the permeability of various compounds across monolayers of Caco-2 cells, which are widely used in drug development studies.
