Figure 1

Accumulation of saquinavir by HAPI microglia in the presence of the P-glycoprotein inhibitor PSC833. (A) [3H]saquinavir (50 nM) accumulation by HAPI cells was measured in the presence (closed circles) or absence (open circles) of PSC833 (5 μM) at 0.5, 1, 2, 5, 10, 30, 60 and 120 minutes, at 37°C. (B) [3H]saquinavir (50 nM) accumulation by HAPI microglia increased significantly, in a dose dependent manner, in the presence of excess unlabelled saquinavir (1 to 10 μM). Each data point represents mean ± SE of at least three separate experiments with three replicates included per experiment; *P < 0.05, significantly different from control.
