Inhibitors of intracellular chloride regulation induce cisplatin resistance in canine osteosarcoma cells.

The objective of this study was to examine the role of ion transport mechanisms in clinical anticancer drug resistance. Reduction in intracellular accumulation of cisplatin is believed to be an early change in cisplatin-resistant cells, and may be dependent on the concentration of intracellular chloride (Cl-) ions and intracellular pH. The primary aim of… (More)
