But Shimizu and others demonstrated that PDZK1 regulates BCRP by increasing its expression level and transcellular transport function in transfected MDCKII/BCRP/PDZK1 cells, and much less BCRP was expressed and localized on the apical membranes in pdzk1 (-/-) mice than that in wild-type mice [12].
Lead has been found in the hair root (having been delivered via radial transcellular transport) and in increasing amounts along the hair shaft indicating exogenous origin (Guy et al., 1999).

Finally, in sockeye salmon, aqp3(a) mRNA was also elevated in the intestine following transfer to SW (Choi et al., 2013), suggesting that either mucus production is elevated in SW or Aqp3a participates in transcellular transport of water or small organic molecules.
In essence, the findings of this theoretical study suggest that the basic processes of transcellular transport across an epithelial cell between the two extracellular compartments may be reduced to an equivalent two-state linear model.
Models of Transcellular Transport of Solutes across Epithelial Cells
The in vitro transcellular transport across Caco-2 monolayers showed a decrease in b-a transport and an increase in a-b transport of R123 in the presence of Curcuma extracts assuming to be due to changes in efflux activity in response to components in these extracts (Fig.
In this segment, the transcellular transport rates of sodium and chloride are quite high, but because the paracellular pathway is highly permeable to water, high sodium and chloride concentration gradients between the lumen and the interstitium are not generated.

These inborn errors consist of defects in the [gamma]-glutamyl cycle, a series of enzyme-linked reactions involved in the synthesis, metabolism, and transcellular transport of glutathione (Fig.
Lactulose and mannitol are markers for the paracellular and transcellular transports, respectively, in the intestinal epithelium.
