pH-Dependent transport of pemetrexed by breast cancer resistance protein.

Breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), an ATP-dependent efflux transporter, confers drug resistance to many chemotherapy agents. BCRP is overexpressed in tumors exposed to an acidic environment; therefore, it is important to establish the effect of low pH on BCRP transport activity. It has recently been reported that BCRP transports substrates more… CONTINUE READING
