Ongoing difficulties include selection of appropriate tumors and measurement of the effects of the ABC transporter inhibitor on the pharmacokinetics of the cytotoxic drug. 5 Multidrug Resistance Mechanisms not Mediated by ABC Transporters Several additional classes of resistance to multiple anticancer drugs of differing structures have been defined. One involves the modification of the enzyme DNA topoisomerase II, a target protein for cytotoxic action. Cells were identified that lacked ABC transporter expression and yet were resistant to the drugs doxorubicin, etoposide, and amsacrine, which have widely differing structures.

Growth of this line in the absence of estrogen signaling causes an immediate cessation of culture growth, followed several months later by the outgrowth of hormone-resistant cell lines. Surprisingly, the G1-phase DNA content, median cell volume, and proliferation rates of the emerging variant lines were not the same as those of the parental cell line, strongly suggesting that they arose from expansion of pre-existing minor populations, rather than by metabolic adaptation of the parental population [69].
