ATP binding cassette transporters are implicated in multidrug resistant phenotypes of tumor cells and may be cancer stem cell markers. Inhibitors of drug efflux pumps represent an emerging group of potentially useful agents for the improvement of antitumor therapy. Here we provide an overview of drug transporter functions and modulation.
