With respect to glioblastoma, very few studies have focused on MRP4 expression. Studies by Rama et al. showed that GBM-initiating cells express little or no ABC transporters [183]; however, drug-resistant cancer stem cells from differentiated malignant patient tumors were noted to express increased levels of MRP4, in addition to P-gp, MRP2, and BRCP [184] supporting a role for ABC transport inhibition in drug effect enhancement. The role of MRP4 in cancers such as neuroblastoma has been found to be a prognostic indicator of progression-free survival independent of drug efflux potential [37, 144, 179, 182], a role which has yet to be investigated in additional cancers including glioblastoma.
