MDR1 (Multi Drug Resistance Protein 1, ABC20, ATP Binding Cassette Subfamily B (MDR/TAP) Member 1, ABCB1, CD243, CLCS, GP170, P-Glycoprotein, P-gp, P Glycoprotein 1, PGY1)
Description:
CD243, also known as MDR1 (multi-drug resistance protein 1) and Pgp (P-glycoprotein), a transmembrane protein and member of the ABC transporter (ATP-binding cassette) family, which acts as an active efflux pump for a diverse range of lipophillic compounds. CD243 is expressed at low levels in the cell membrane of peripheral blood leucocytes, and constitutively expressed on the apical plasma membrane of excretory epithelial cells of the kidney, liver, brain and small intestine. CD243 mediates resistance to many chemotherapeutic agents used for tumor suppression and is therefore of special interest to oncologists. M2825-15F is a strong inhibitor of CD243-mediated efflux and of the resistance of MDR cells to CD243 transported cytotoxic drugs. Can be used in a shift assay to selectively demonstrate the expression and functional activity of CD243 in a target cell.
