Abstract [en]

This thesis work investigates factors influencing intracellular drug disposition. An experimental method for measurement of intracellular bioavailability (Fic), was used throughout. Fic is defined as the ratio between the unbound drug concentration inside the cell and the compound concentration in the cell exterior.

First, the impact of transporter proteins—such as the uptake transporter OATP-1B1 and the efflux transporter P-gp—on Fic was assessed in isolation in singly transfected, well-characterized cell models. The net impact of ADME proteins on Fic, including drug transporter proteins and metabolic enzymes, was assessed in primary human hepatocytes. The results indicated that the Fic measurement accurately reflected system-dependent functionality of these proteins.

Second, the impact of cellular lipids on Fic was studied, in particular phospholipids (a major constituent of cellular membranes) and neutral lipids (in the form of neutral lipid droplets in adipocytes). Drug partitioning to phospholipids was found to be the major determinant of intracellular fraction of unbound drug (fu,cell), while neutral lipid droplets and cellular proteins played a relatively smaller role. Therefore, the importance of phospholipids, and their major four subspecies—phosphatidylcholine (PC), phosphatidylethanolamine (PE), phosphatidylserine (PS) and phosphatidylinositol (PI)—was investigated in a cell-free approach with purified phospholipids.

Finally, Fic was applied in two ways to drug discovery settings. First, Fic successfully harmonized system-dependent CYP450 enzyme inhibition values (IC50) obtained in human hepatocytes and human liver microsomes. Fic measured in suspended human hepatocytes also reflected hepatic enrichment factors of CYP450 inhibitors used in physiologically-based pharmacokinetic modelling. Second, Fic was used as a complementary tool to study the effect of cell-penetrating peptides on intracellular disposition of targeted antisense oligonucleotide conjugates.

Overall, the thesis contributes to the mechanistic understanding of Fic and demonstrates its use for drug compound profiling at an early stage in drug discovery settings.

Abstract [en]

Intracellular unbound drug concentrations are the pharmacologically relevant concentrations for targets inside cells. Intracellular drug concentrations are determined by multiple processes, including the extent of drug binding to intracellular structures. The aim of this study was to evaluate the effect of neutral lipid (NL) and phospholipid (PL) levels on intracellular drug disposition. The NL and/or PL content of 3T3-L1 cells were enhanced, resulting in phenotypes (in terms of morphology and proteome) reminiscent of adipocytes (high NL and PL) or mild phospholipidosis (only high PL). Intracellular bioavailability (F-ic) was then determined for 23 drugs in these cellular models and in untreated wild-type cells. A higher PL content led to higher intracellular drug binding and a lower F-ic. The induction of NL did not further increase drug binding but led to altered F-ic due to increased lysosomal pH. Further, there was a good correlation between binding to beads coated with pure PL and intracellular drug binding. In conclusion, our results suggest that PL content is a major determinant of drug binding in cells and that PL beads may constitute a simple alternative to estimating this parameter. Further, the presence of massive amounts of intracellular NLs did not influence drug binding significantly.

Abstract [en]

Intracellular drug exposure is influenced by cell-and tissue-dependent expression of drug-transporting proteins and metabolizing enzymes. Here, we introduce the concept of intracellular bioavailability (F-ic) as the fraction of extracellular drug available to bind intracellular targets, and we assess how Fic is affected by cellular drug disposition processes. We first investigated the impact of two essential drug transporters separately, one influx transporter (OATP1B1; SLCO1B1) and one efflux transporter (P-gp; ABCB1), in cells overexpressing these proteins. We showed that OATP1B1 increased Fic of its substrates, while P-gp decreased Fic. We then investigated the impact of the concerted action of multiple transporters and metabolizing enzymes in freshly-isolated human hepatocytes in culture configurations with different levels of expression and activity of these proteins. We observed that Fic was up to 35-fold lower in the configuration with high expression of drug-eliminating transporters and enzymes. We conclude that Fic provides a measurement of the net impact of all cellular drug disposition processes on intracellular bioavailable drug levels. Importantly, no prior knowledge of the involved drug distribution pathways is required, allowing for high-throughput determination of drug access to intracellular targets in highly defined cell systems (e.g., single-transporter transfectants) or in complex ones (including primary human cells).
