Abstract:


Multidrug resistance (MDR) is a limitation to cancer chemotherapy, antibiotic treatment and HIV medication. Molecular models of the ABC transporters ABCB1 (P-glycoprotein), ABCC4 (multidrug resistance protein 4 (MRP4)) and ABCC5 (MRP5), which are involved in MDR, may aid in the development of drugs inhibiting anticancer agents efflux.

Keywords:

Molecular modeling, P-glycoprotein/ABCB1, MRP4/ABCC4, MRP5/ABCC5, multidrug resistance
