Moreover, the specific protein kinases responsible for the in vivo phosphorylation of P-glycoprotein havenot been unequivocally identified. However, recent transfection-basedstudies have provided more direct evidence that phosphorylationby protein kinase isoform Ca (186,187), but not isoform (188), may be involved in augmenting P-glycoprotein-mediated drug resistance. P-glycoprotein may also be regulated by other kinases that have been studied to a lesser degree (189). Thus it has been suggested that the linker region may be a regulatory domain of P-glycoprotein function (190,191), analogous to theregulatory (“R”) domain in CFTR (37,192-194).
