However, there was a large J Cardiovasc Pharmacol ä  Volume 00, Number 0, Month 2009 prolongation in the QTc, RR, and PR intervals of the ECG.
Some strong linear correlations were observed between AMheart concentrations and QTc interval prolongation in both NLand HL rats with very similar slopes, indicating similar effectsat the level of the heart (Fig. 3). However, although therelationship between AM total (bound + unbound) plasmaconcentrations and QTc interval prolongation was linear inboth groups, the slope in NL rats was 10-fold higher than HLrats, suggesting heterogeneity in the heart uptake of the drugbetween the 2 groups (Fig. 3). Because it is commonlybelieved that only the unbound drug is capable of traversingthe cell membrane and exerting the pharmacological activity,and because the drug had the same concentration versus effectrelationship at the level of the heart (Fig. 3), the slopes ofunbound concentration versus heart uptake should match. Itwas possible to estimate the unbound AM plasma concentra-tions by multiplying previously obtained estimates of theunbound fraction in NL (0.0853%) and HL (0.00345%) plasmaby the total drug (bound + unbound) concentrations.12,22 Indoing so, it was clear that there was a difference in NL and HLslopes of unbound plasma AM concentrations and heart uptake,indicating that an additional factor besides unbound fraction wasinvolved in controlling uptake of AM into the heart (Fig. 4).
It had previously suggested that the cause of the increased heart concentrations of AM in HL rats was at least inpart due to the influence of VLDL receptor–mediated uptakeof drug.22 There are 9 members of the LDL receptor familywhich comprise cell surface receptors that transport a numberof lipoproteins, and lipoprotein-encapsulated drug, into cellsthrough endocytosis.33 The VLDL receptors, which area member of the LDL receptor family, are abundantlyexpressed in fatty acid–active tissues (heart, muscle, andadipose) and macrophages.34 Unlike LDL receptors, in-tracellular lipoproteins do not downregulate VLDL receptor FIGURE 2. AM plasma and heart concentrations (mg/mL) in NL expression.34,35 It has been reported that in HL plasma, there is and HL rats 12 hours after the last AM HCl doses of 25, 50, or a substantial shift of drug and metabolite mostly from the 100 mgÁkg21Ád21. *Significant difference between NL and HL lipoprotein-deficient plasma fractions to the chylomicron and VLDL fractions,36 which is in line with the high level ofVLDL receptor expression in heart.
The positive correlations (Fig. 5) noted between the total induced.31 It has been shown to increase the plasma CHOL:TG ratio and the QT interval, AM plasma, and heart concentrations of several drugs including AM after single concentrations at first glance would seem to contradict the doses,12,22,32 due to increased plasma lipoprotein binding and involvement of VLDL receptors in the heart uptake of AM, reduction in metabolism. In the rat, AM has a moderate hepatic because next to chylomicrons, VLDL possesses the lowest extraction ratio, and as such a decrease in unbound fraction CHOL:TG ratio of all lipoproteins. It must be recognized, should be expected to cause either no change or a decrease in however, that it is not VLDL itself that is taken up by cells the tissue uptake of the drug. However, as was recently through the actions of VLDL-mediated endocytosis but rather reported, in some tissues, HL caused increases in concen- VLDL remnants, also called IDL.37 The IDL particles are the trations, and notably, one of these tissues was the heart.22 This product of the action of lipoprotein lipase, which facilitates the was confirmed here in the present repeated dose study in which loss of TG from the VLDL particles. Further loss of TG from heart AM concentrations were higher in HL rats and where IDL particles causes them to become LDL particles.

Such activity results in increases in atrial and heart concentrations are still consistent with the uptake of and ventricular refractoriness. It also depresses automaticity of AM into VLDL. In plasma, although the AM shift to VLDL is the sinoatrial node, resulting in slowing of the heart rate. The apparently greater than that to LDL fractions in HL plasma, the drug also slows conduction and increases refractoriness of the AM association to LDL is virtually identical in NL and HL atrioventricular node.14 These effects can be visualized by plasma.36 This suggests that the affinity of AM to LDL, with its J Cardiovasc Pharmacol ä  Volume 00, Number 0, Month 2009 FIGURE 3.

Therefore, in thought to be dose dependent.38,39 Similar observations were plasma, which contains higher CHOL:TG ratios, more AM made in human where long-term AM therapy resulted in might be anticipated to be present in the LDL particles, which in turn might lead to a lower AM plasma–unbound fraction and The values of ECG parameters in saline control rats came increased total (bound + unbound) AM concentrations in in accordance with those previously published (Table 1).27 plasma, as was seen in these HL rats (Fig. 5, upper panels).
