Enzyme Commission Primary Name: xenobiotic-transporting ATPase

Enzyme Commission Synonyms: multidrug-resistance protein, MDR protein, P-glycoprotein, pleiotropic-drug-resistance protein, PDR protein, steroid-transporting ATPase, ATP phosphohydrolase (steroid-exporting)

Enzyme Commission Summary:
ABC-type (ATP-binding cassette-type) ATPase, characterized by the presence of two similar ATP-binding domains. Does not undergo phosphorylation during the transport process. The enzyme from Gram-positive bacteria and eukaryotic cells export a number of drugs, with unusual specificity, covering various groups of unrelated substances, while ignoring some that are closely related structurally. Several distinct enzymes may be present in a single eukaryotic cell. Many of them transport glutathione-drug conjugates. Some also show some 'flippase' (phospholipid-translocating ATPase; EC activity.
