    Notes: Abstract Multidrug resistance in animal cells is defined as the simultaneous resistance to a variety of compounds which appear to be structurally and mechanistically unrelated. One type of multidrug resistance is characterized by the decreased accumulation of hydrophobic natural product drugs, a phenotype which is mediated by an ATP-dependent integral membrane multidrug transporter termed P-glycoprotein or P170. The gene coding for P170 is calledMDR. The nucleotide-binding domain of P-glycoprotein shares sequence homology with a family of bacterial permease ATP-binding components. In addition, P170 as a whole is structurally very similar to a number of prokaryotic and eukaryotic proteins believed to be involved in transport activities. This review summarizes our current knowledge of the molecular biology and clinical significance ofMDR expression and P-glycoprotein transport activity, as well as some theories about the function of this protein in normal cells.
