18202660 ABCB5 expression identifies melanoma stem cells and correlates with clinical disease progression in melanoma patients. In vivo targeting of ABCB5+ melanoma stem cells inhibits tumor growth in human to mouse melanoma xenotransplantation models.
17661346 6-mercaptopurine decreased iNOS expression and increased MRP5 mRNA levels.
15899824 ABCB5 mediates chemoresistance in stem cell phenotype-expressing human malignant melanoma cells.
15760339 expression of ABCB 5alpha/beta might possibly provide two novel molecular markers for differential diagnosis of melanomas and constitute potential molecular targets for therapy of melanomas
12960149 ABCB5 P-glycoprotein functions include: Regulation of progenitor cell fusion; Regulation of cell membrane potential; Rhodamine-123 transport.
