Chemical specificity of the PDR5 multidrug resistance gene product of Saccharomyces cerevisiae based on studies with tri-n-alkyltin chlorides.

To understand the chemical basis of action for the PDR5-encoded multidrug resistance transporter of Saccharomyces cerevisiae, we compared the relative hypersensitivities of the wild-type (RW2802) and null mutant strains toward a series of tri-n-alkyltin compounds. These compounds differ from each other in a systematic fashion-either by hydrocarbon chain… CONTINUE READING
