We previously reported that shikonin could circumvent drug resistance mediated by P-gp, Bcl-2 and Bcl-xL, by induction of necroptosis. Here, we show that the naturally-occurring shikonin analogues (deoxyshikonin, acetylshikonin, isobutyrylshikonin, beta,beta-dimethylacrylshikonin, isovalerylshikonin, alpha-methyl-n-butylshikonin) could bypass drug resistance mediated by not only P-gp, Bcl-2, and Bcl-xL, but also two additional important drug-resistant factors MRP1 and BCRP1, by induction of… CONTINUE READING
