Uptake of norcholansulfonate (3 alpha, 7 alpha, 12 alpha-trihydroxy-24-nor-5 beta-cholan-23-sulfonate), an isogeometric analogue of cholate into isolated rat liver hepatocytes occurs only by saturable transport. In order to identify the transport systems involved, uptake of norcholansulfonate was studied using 7 beta-NBD-NCT ({N-[7-(4-nitrobenzo-2-oxa-1,3-diazol)]-7 beta-amino-3 alpha,12 alpha-dihydroxy-5 beta-cholan-24-oyl})-2'-aminoethanesulfonate) as a competing substrate. For transport of both bile salt derivatives, which mutually inhibit their mediated transport competitively, the existence of at least three transport systems must be assumed. Uptake studies using the cloned hepatic Na+/cholyltaurine cotransporting polypeptide stably expressed in CHO cells (Chinese hamster ovary cells) showed that both bile salt derivatives were transported and furnished the definite KT values of this single transport system and the ratio of the maximal uptake velocities. On the basis of these data, uptake of both bile salt derivatives into rat hepatocytes and their mutual competitive inhibition could be analyzed for three transport systems. The maximal flux rates J2 and the half-saturation constants KT2 in the presence of Na+ (143 mM) are for norcholansulfonate: J1(Na+ 143) = 1.0 +/- 0.2 nmol/(min . mg protein), KT1(Na+ 143) = 15 +/- 4 microM, J2(Na+ 143) = 0.5 +/- 0.2 nmol/(min.mg protein), KT2(Na+ 143) = 15 +/- 2 microM, J3(Na+ 143) = 0.5 +/- 0.2 nmol/(min.mg protein), KT3(Na+ 143) = 60 +/- 15 microM, and for 7 beta-NBD-NCT J1(Na+ 143) = 0.14 +/- 0.04 nmol/(min.mg protein), KT1(Na+ 143) = 3.1 +/- 0.5 microM, J2(Na+ 143) = 0.014 +/- 0.005 nmol/(min.mg protein), KT2(Na+ 143) = 21 +/- 2 microM, J3(Na+ 143) = 1.0 +/- 0.1 nmol/(min.mg protein), KT3(Na+ 143) = 190 +/- 25 microM. The kinetic parameters are in accordance with the assumptions that the cloned Na+/cholyltaurine cotransporting polypeptide represents transport system 2 and that the kinetically identified additional
