MDR1 P-glycoprotein transports endogenous opioid peptides.

Abstract

MDR1 P-glycoprotein is generally regarded as an efflux pump for amphipathic toxic compounds. The question remains, however, whether certain endogenous compounds are also substrates for this transporter. Certain peptides have been shown to interact with MDR1 Pgp as well and we have therefore investigated whether endogenous bioactive peptides are substrates… (More)
