P-glycoprotein-mediated multidrug resistance and cytotoxic effector cells.


Multidrug resistance (MDR) is one of the major obstacles to successful cancer chemotherapy. MDR is a complex and multifactorial phenomenon. One important and common mechanism used by cancer cells as a defense against cytotoxic drugs is a 170-kD plasma membrane glycoprotein, P-glycoprotein (P-gp). P-gp confers resistance by actively pumping cytotoxic drugs… (More)
