Medical Definition of P-glycoprotein

1. A family of integral plasma membrane proteins which, when overexpressed, function as adenosine triphosphate-dependent efflux pumps, causing multidrug resistance. Mammalian p-glycoproteins are encoded by small mdr gene families. There are several isotypes in multiple species. See: multidrug transporter. (22 Sep 2002)
