A primary role of P-glycoprotein (P-gp), encoded by the multidrug resistance type I gene, is to protect against naturally occurring xenotoxics. Recently, the preferential expression of chicken multidrug resistance type I (Cmdr1) was identified in the embryonic gonads during the early periods of development. Here we investigated the expression of Cmdr1 and P… CONTINUE READING
