Can prenylcysteines be exploited as ligands for mammalian multidrug-resistance transporters?
The overexpression of specific transport proteins in the membrane of many cancer cells renders these cells resistant to many therapeutic drugs. Some lipid-modified cysteine compounds inhibit one drug-transporting protein, indicating the potential of developing such compounds as therapeutic agents.
