Expression of the human multidrug resistance P-glycoprotein is associated with two activities, active drug transport and a volume-regulated chloride channel. In this study we define four classes of compound, based on their differential effects on these two activities. Class I compounds are substrates transported by P-glycoprotein. They also prevent channel activation when added to the cytoplasmic face of the membrane. Class II compounds include reversers of multidrug resistance such as… CONTINUE READING
