Three organic anion transporting polypeptides (OATPs; now called solute carrier organic anion transporters, SLCOs) are able to mediate the transport of thyroid hormones, predominantly thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) (Fujiwara et al. 2001). SLCO1B1 (formerly OATP-C), which can also transport bile salts, is mainly expressed in the liver (Abe et al. 1999, Hsiang et al. 1999).
