    ..Among these inhibitors, 2- and 4-sulfooxymethylpyrene were competitive inhibitors of SOAT, with apparent K(i) values of 4.3 and 5.5 microm, respectively, and they were also transported by SOAT-HEK293 cells. ..

    ..Although the functional properties of Slc10a4 could not be elucidated in this study, Slc10a4 is regarded as a new marker protein for cholinergic neurons in the rat CNS. ..
