Atomistic studies of the dynamics of P-glycoprotein and its ligands

Abstract:

A signifficant obstacle facing the healthcare industry is the phenomenon of multidrug resistance (MDR) in which a cell acquires simultaneous resistance to many unrelated drugs that it has never been exposed to. At the molecular level, MDR can be characterised by a reduction of intracellular drug levels due to their active efflux by multidrug transporters such as P-glycoprotein (Pgp). Pgp is able to efflux a phenomenally wide variety of chemically unrelated drugs and causal relationships ha...
