    The ATP-binding cassette transporters P-glycoprotein (ABCB1, MDR1) and multidrug resistance protein 4 (MRP4) efflux irinotecan and its active metabolite SN-38 in vitro, and thus may contribute to system clearance of these compounds. Mdr1a/b-/-, Mrp4-/-, and wild-type mice were administered 20 or...

    Background: Multidrug efflux transporter P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is highly expressed on membrane of tumor cells and is implicated in resistance to tumor chemotherapy. HZ08 is synthesized and studied in order to find a novel P-gp inhibitor. Methods: MDCK-MDR1 monolayer transport, calcein-AM P-gp...

    Introduction (R)-[11C]Verapamil (VPM) is a new positron emission tomography (PET) tracer to measure P-glycoprotein (Pgp)-mediated transport at the blood-brain barrier (BBB). Owing to the lack of a suitable reference region in brain that is devoid of P-gp, a metabolite-corrected arterial input...

    Background: The ABCB1 drug transporter P-glycoprotein (P-gp) plays an important function in the blood-brain barrier limiting a broad spectrum of substrates from entering the central nervous system. In the present study, the transport activity of P-gp for sertraline, bupropion, and their major...

    The multidrug resistance proteins (MRPs) MRP1, MRP2, MRP3, MRP5 and P-glycoprotein (P-gp) act in concert with each other to give a net resultant pump function in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The aim of the present study was to analyze the activity of these proteins, which might be upregulated...
