Abstract
Transmembrane transporters mediate energy dependent or independent translocation of drugs, potentially toxic compounds, and of various endogenous substrates such as bile acids and bilirubin across membranes. In this thesis the focus is on two classes of transporters, the ATPbinding cassette (ABC) transporters, which mediate ATP dependent transport and the solute carriers (SLC) which use electrochemical gradients for their transport. The transporters are expressed on membranes of cells of excretory organs (e.g. kidney, liver) and protective barriers (e.g. intestine, blood brain barrier) and influence therefore the absorption, distribution and elimination of compo...
