An NCI Team Links ABC Transporter-Protein Expression and Cancer-Cell Drug Response | GenomeWeb

National Cancer Institute scientists recently created a gene-expression database for ABC transport proteins that they hope will be compared to a constantly growing second database of cancer-drug responses.

Their research links cancer-cell drug resistance — and occasional sensitivity — to 1,429 compounds in the huge NCI-60 Drug Screen database with the expression of each of the 48 ABC protein-family members.
