Abstract

Pancreatic cancer is characterized by high resistance to chemotherapy. Such chemoresistance can be mediated by multidrug resistance proteins (MRPs), breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP), and MDR1 P-glycoprotein. However, the contribution of individual MRP isoforms to chemoresistance in pancreatic carcinoma is unclear. We studied ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporter expression in human pancreatic carcinoma cell lines as compared to primary pancreatic duct cells, and analyzed the MRP expression profile in 5-fluorouracil-resistant cells.
