In-silico modelization of compounds interaction with Bile salt Export Pump (BSEP): an alternative approach to predict hepatotoxicity

In-silico modelization of compounds interaction with Bile salt Export Pump (BSEP): an alternative approach to predict hepatotoxicity

BSEP is an efflux transporter protein present in the hepatocytes membrane that plays important role in bile acid flow from hepatocyte cell into the bile canaliculi (1,2). Impaired BSEP activity due to drug interaction leads to accumulation of bile acid within the hepatocyte cells and results in cholestasis liver injury (DILI)(3). However, due to the lack of a X-ray structure of BSEP, there is no detail information about interaction of compounds with BSEP.
