ALTERING THE EXPRESSION OF P-GLYCOPROTEIN RESPONSIBLE FOR CHEMOTHERAPEUTIC DRUG RESISTANCE IN HEPG2 CELL LINE POST-TREATMENT WITH UREA AND β-MERCAPTOETHANOL
Asian Journal of Pharmaceutical and Clinical Research
Objective: The objective of this study is to alter the expression of p-glycoprotein (p-gp) pump proteins in HepG2 cells after treating with urea and β-mercaptoethanol (BME) (lead compounds). The most common cause for resistance to a broad range of anticancer drugs is influenced by overexpression of p-gp pumps that detect and eject anticancer drugs from the cancer cell. Altering the expression of these proteins will reduce the efflux action and enhance the drug retention eventually killing thedoi:10.22159/ajpcr.2019.v12i6.32834 fatcat:fp2laajyuzbgrbzqhhbulpkzuq
