We selected two drug resistant variants of the MCF7 human breast cancer cell line by chronic in vitro exposure to doxorubicin (MCF7/D40 cell line) and mitoxantrone (MCF7/Mitox cell line), respectively. The cell lines are similar in growth characteristics including doubling time, DNA synthetic phase and cell size. Resistance to mitoxantrone conferred only(More)
We present data describing a human myeloma cell line (8226/LR-5) selected for resistance to melphalan which exhibits a 7-fold level of resistance to melphalan and is partially cross-resistant to other bifunctional alkylators and X-irradiation. Melphalan resistance is relatively unstable with a decrease in resistance observed within 17 weeks in the absence(More)
Seeking to optimize the immunocytochemical assay of P-glycoprotein, a 170-kilodalton (P-170) molecule associated with multidrug resistance, we experimented with a variety of antibodies (JSB-1, C219, and MRK-16), fixation conditions, and titers using both human myeloma cell lines and clinical myeloma specimens. Under optimized conditions, using all three(More)
Verapamil reversed resistance to doxorubicin in a human multiple myeloma cell line selected for multiple drug resistance. The drug-resistant cell line 8226/DOX40 is known to have reduced intracellular drug accumulation associated with the overexpression of P-glycoprotein when compared to the sensitive parent cell line 8226/S. Verapamil alone was minimally(More)
