The stabilisation of purified, reconstituted P-glycoprotein by freeze drying with disaccharides

Heikal, Adam; Box, Karl; Rothnie, Alice; Storm, Janet; Allen, Marcus; Callaghan, Richard


The drug efflux pump P-glycoprotein (P-gp) (ABCB1) confers multidrug resistance, a major cause of failure in the chemotherapy of tumours, exacerbated by a shortage of potent and selective inhibitors. A high throughput assay using purified P-gp to screen and characterise potential inhibitors would greatly accelerate their development. However, long-term stability of purified reconstituted ABCB1 can only be reliably achieved with storage at -80 °C. For example, at 20 °C, the activity of ABCB1 was...[Show more]
