Clinical relavance of efflux transporters
Efflux transporters are positioned so as to encounter potentially harmful substances face-to-face — in important places like the intestine, the placenta, and the blood-brain and blood-testes barriers, making them an excellent first line of defense.
Embedded within a cell’s membrane, this protein protects a cell by ejecting a variety of molecules — in many cases, toxins —on contact. The cell might be a bacterium, in which case the “toxins” are antibiotics.
With cancer cells, the “poisons” are chemotherapy drugs.
