Reversal of heavy metal resistance in multidrug-resistant human KB carcinoma cells.


Human KB carcinoma C-A120 cells that express multidrug resistance-associated protein (MRP) were cross-resistant to trivalent and pentavalent antimonials and arsenicals. Intracellular glutathione (GSH) content was higher in C-A120 than its parental KB-3-1 cell line. Glutathione-S-transferase (GST) was similar in both cell lines. Depletion of cellular GSH by… (More)
