  • We have previously shown that methotrexate (MTX) transport is impaired in murine L1210 cells selected for cisplatin (DDP) resistance (L1210/DDP) and that the decreased MTX uptake may be due to an altered 66 kDa membrane protein. We have further hypothesized that tyrosine phosphorylation is necessary for the function of this protein. To determine the importance of tyrosine phosphorylation we studied the effect of genistein, a tyrosine kinase inhibitor, on methotrexate sensitivity, uptake and… CONTINUE READING
