Overexpression of the ABC transporter TAP in multidrug-resistant human cancer cell lines.

Multidrug resistance (MDR) to anti-cancer drugs has been associated with the overexpression of P-glycoprotein (P-gp) and the multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP), both being members of the ATP-binding cassette (ABC) superfamily of transporters. We investigated whether in addition to P-gp and MRP, another ABC transporter, the transporter associated… CONTINUE READING
