Hepatocyte models composed of primary cells assembled into a double collagen layer sandwich provide an in vivo-like environment, which can retain some important liver functions long enough for useful data to be obtained . More recently, a mini bioreactor scaffold has been devised for biotransformation studies, comprised of a polycarbonate scaffold in 6-, 24-, and 96-well formats, which supports a gaspermeable PTFE membrane, suitable for medium throughput screening . Animal or human cells can be used, although the latter are often in short supply and rapidly lose their viability and phase I and II biotransforming capacities.
The latter analogue-based minimization of the natural ligand for a target protein is particularly relevant, given that larger molecules such as peptides and proteins are increasingly being investigated as clinical agents. Currently, more than 40 peptides are marketed worldwide, with some 700 more at various stages of development as drug leads. Similarly, there are some 120 antibody-, hormone-, and enzyme-based therapeutics currently on the global market. Many of these therapeutics are more specific and more active than their small molecule counterparts, and they accumulate less readily in tissues, with generally lower oral bioavailability and less stability.
Drug interactions with efflux proteins such as P-gp can also be monitored with HepG2 cells, to gauge the extent of drug uptake into the liver . Krebsfaenger et al.  constructed a panel of Chinese hamster cell lines that stably expressed variants of the human CYP2D6 gene, or in the case of the genetically engineered and metabolically competent V79 Cell Battery™, tissue-specific human phase I or II metabolic enzymes, including a number of CYP variants, glutathione S-transferases, and N-acetyltransferases.
