I'm watching a kaplan renal physiology video as we speak and the lecturer was talking about the non specific organic anion transporter in the proximal tubule and he lists the following drugs: penicillin, furosemide, acetazolamide and salycylate which all use and compete for this transporter. Now my question is this, is it safe to assume all the drugs that use this transporter compete with uric acid? i.e. does Uric acid also use this transporter? And if it does, then why can't i find any source on the internet stating that acetazolamide causes gout? The other 3: penicillin, furosemide and salycylate (low dose) are known to cause gout. But what about acetazolamide?
