Abstract
The objective of this study was to evaluate the reversal of multidrug resistance of human cell lines by specific inhibitors of α-glucosidases and mannosidases that had been reported to be involved in N-linked oligosaccharide processing of glycoproteins. N-methyldeoxynojirimycin, 1-deoxynojirimycin, and castanosperminc, which were known to be potent inhibitors of both α-glucosidase I and II, showed no activity against the multidrug resistant phenotype of the cell lines of SNU1DOX, KB-V1, and MCF-7/ADR. In contrast, 1-deoxymannojirimycin, an inhibitor of mannosidase I, resulted in a slight reversal for the vinblastine resistance of the KB-V1 cell line, but did not show any activity toward the other cell lines. Parallel experiments with tunicamycin, an inhibitor of N-linked glycosylation, also resulted in no significant changes in multidrug resistant (MDR) phenotype of the cell lines tested in this work. These observations suggest that the unglycosylation of P-glycoprotein associated with the inhibitor treatments might not be correlated with the reversal of multidrug resistance of the cell lines tested in this study.
