    Multidrug resistance (MDR) is one of the major obstacles to successful cancer chemotherapy. Since P-glycoprotein (P-gp) encoded by the MDR-1 gene plays a key role in MDR, many P-gp-specific monoclonal antibodies (MAbs) have been generated for characterization and analysis of P-gp. Among those...

    Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major obstacle to successful cancer chemotherapy. One important mechanism of MDR involves the multidrug transporter, P-glycoprotein (Pgp), which confers upon cancer cells the ability to resist lethal doses of certain cytotoxic drugs by pumping the drugs out of the...

    MS-209 is a newly synthesised multidrug-resistance (MDR)-reversing agent with few side-effects. In this study, we evaluated the effect of MS-209 on P-glycoprotein (Pgp)-positive tumours in mice by means of technetium-99m methoxyisobutylisonitrile (MIBI) imaging. Mice received Pgp-negative KB-3-1...

    The gene encoding the multidrug resistance P-glycoprotein (P-gp) is duplicated in rodent species and the functional basis for this remains unresolved. Despite a high sequence similarity, the mouse P-gp1a and P-gp1b isoforms show distinct patterns of tissue distribution which suggest a specific...

    The multidrug transporter P-glycoprotein (Pgp), which is frequently overexpressed in multidrug resistant leukemia, has many proposed physiological functions including involvement in transmembraneous transport of certain growth-regulating cytokines. Therefore, we studied cell growth of three...

    Multidrug resistance associated with the overexpression of the multidrug transporter P-glycoprotein is a serious impediment to successful cancer treatment. We found that verapamil reversed resistance of CEM/VLB[SUB100] cells to vinblastine and fluorescein-colchicine, but not to colchicine....

    This paper summarizes experimental data and theoretical considerations, that are important for the measurement of P-glycoprotein (Pgp) function in acute myeloid leukemia (AML). The data are presented in subdivisions based on the techniques used, which will facilitate finding specific...

    The MDR1 gene product, P-glycoprotein (P-gp), works as a transmembrane efflux pump for several cytotoxic products, representing a major cause for cancer treatment failure. Rhodamine 123 (Rh123), a low toxic fluorescent probe commonly used to assess mitochondrial bioenergetics in living cells,...

    Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a major problem in patients with hematological malignancies. Although drug-resistance is known to be induced by the expression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) encoded by the MDR-1 gene, little is known about the mechanisms regulating this gene. Herein, we studied the DNA...
