Amplification and increased expression of the mdr1 gene associated with multidrug resistance in human tumors were found in multidrug-resistant sublines of human myelogenous leukemia K562 selected with vincristine (K562/VCR) or adriamycin (K562/ADM). In two revertant cell lines of K562/ADM, amplification of the mdr1 gene was maintained at the same level as in K562/ADM, but expression of the 4,5-kilobase mdr1 mRNA was greatly decreased, indicating that amplified genes may be inactivated at the level of transcription without a corresponding loss of amplified DNA.
