Product Usage Information

Storage: Supplied in 10 mM sodium HEPES (pH 7.5), 150 mM NaCl, 100 µg/ml BSA and 50% glycerol. Store at –20°C. Do not aliquot the antibody.

Specificity / Sensitivity

MRP1/ABCC Antibody recognizes endogenous levels of total MRP1 protein. This antibody does not cross-react with other MRP proteins.

Source / Purification

Polyclonal antibodies are produced by immunizing animals with a synthetic peptide corresponding to residues surrounding Gln271 of human MRP1 protein. Antibodies are purified by protein A and peptide affinity chromatography.

Multidrug resistance-associated protein 1 (MRP1/ABCC1) is a member of the MRP subfamily of ATP-binding cassette (ABC) transporters (1). MRP1/ABCC1 protein functions as an organic anion transporter. It has a broad range of substrates, including antineoplastic or therapeutic agents and the glutathione (GSH) conjugates of these compounds. MRP1/ABCC1 also transports physiological substrates such as folates, GSH and GSH disulfide (GSSG) conjugates of steroids, leukotrienes, and prostaglandins (2,3).

Although MRP1/ABCC1 is generally expressed in normal tissue, upregulation of MRP1/ABCC1 has been found in a variety of solid tumors, including small cell lung cancer, breast cancer, and prostate cancer (1,4,5). Research studies show that overexpression of MRP1/ABCC1 facilitates the elimination of therapeutic agents from cancer cells and confers drug resistance in those patients. Research studies also show that elevated expression of MRP1/ABCC1 is a negative prognostic marker for breast cancer and small cell lung cancer, as the level of MRP1/ABCC1 is predictive of the response and toxicity of chemotherapeutic agents in those patients (6-10).
