How to use
NSC 60339 has been correlated with the sensitivity, resistance, or cross-resistance of 7 tumor lines to phthalanilide treatment in vivo. The sensitive tumors (L1210, L1210/MTX, L1210/ara-C, and P815) rapidly takes up the drug and retained it primarily as lipid-bound drug for the 24-hr experimental period. The resistant tumor, L1210/NSC 60339, and 2 cross-resistant tumors, P388/VCR and P815/VLB, took up as much drug as the sensitive tumors did by 0.5 hr, but there was an efflux of lipid-bound drug from these resistant tumors by 24 hr.
