Abstract

BACKGROUND/AIMS: The organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATPs) mediate the uptake of numerous amphipathic compounds into hepatocytes. Our aim was to study the expression and regulation of OATP8 (OATP1B3, SLC21A8/SLCO1B3) and OATP-C (OATP1B1, SLC21A6/SLCO1B1) in hepatocellular carcinomas (HCC). METHODS: RNA and protein levels in 13 paired HCC and adjacent non-tumor liver samples were quantified by real-time polymerase chain reaction or Western blot, respectively. The OATP8 and OATP-C gene promoters were characterized by luciferase reporter assays and electrophoretic mobility shift assays (EMSA). RESULTS: The expression of OATP8 was decreased in 60% of HCC compared to surrounding non-tumor liver tissue, on both the mRNA and protein levels. Expression of the liver-enriched transcription factor hepatocyte nuclear factor 3β (HNF3β) was increased in 70% of HCC and correlated inversely with OATP8 mRNA (r=−0.75, P>0.05) and protein. In contrast to OATP8, expression of OATP-C was not significantly decreased in HCC. In transfected Huh7 cells, OATP8 promoter activity was inhibited by 70% when HNF3β was cotransfected. An HNF3β binding site was located at nt −39/−23 by EMSA. The OATP-C promoter was not inhibited by HNF3β. Conclusions: HNF3β represses transcription of the OATP8 but not the OATP-C gene, providing a mechanism for reduced expression of OATP8 in HCC.
