Abstract: ABC50 (aka ABCF1) is a member of the ATP Binding Cassette protein family. ABC50 stimulates complex formation between eIF2, GTP and Met-tRNA implicating it in translation initiation. Econazole (Ec) is an imidazole anti-fungal that induces endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress in mammalian cells by promoting ER Ca(2+) depletion and sustained protein synthesis inhibition. HL60 cells selected for Ec resistance were found to exhibit a multi-drug resistance phenotype associated specifically with ER stress. Differential …
