Multidrug resistance (MDR) is defined as resistance of tumor cells to a wide spectrum of structurally and functionally unrelated drugs. One of the most important mechanisms in mediating MDR is that involving cellular drug efflux transporters.

PTEN is a tumor suppressor gene located on chromosome 10q23 and is amongst the most commonly mutated genes in human cancers. The lipid phosphatase activity of Pten enables it to dephosphorylate PIP3, thereby antagonizing growth factor stimulated PI3-kinase signaling mediated by AKT/PKB. The growth inhibition effect of PTEN has been shown to be mediated by(More)
