Previously, we have reported that a multidrug-resistant, mitoxantrone (MX)-selected cell line, MCF7/MX, is highly cross-resistant to the antifolate methotrexate (MTX), because of enhanced ATP-dependent drug efflux (E. L. Volk et al., Cancer Res., 60: 3514–3521, 2000). These cells overexpress the breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), and resistance to MTX(More)

BACKGROUND Ribozymes are an effective tool to reduce the mRNA levels of specific target genes. Overexpression of the drug transport protein, ABCG2, has been associated with multidrug resistance in cancer cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS An expression plasmid encoding a hammerhead ribozyme against the ABCG2 gene was stably transfected into multidrug-resistant(More)
