Behavior of P-glycoprotein (Pgp) natural lipid environment within the membrane of CEM cells expressing Pgp in the quantities varying from 0% to 32% of the total amount of all membrane proteins is described for the first time. Observed cooperative effect of Pgp-induced increase of membrane stability, decrease of the temperature of gel-to-crystal lipids transition and predominance of the lipid liquid crystalline phase at physiological temperatures should have an impact in development of multidrug resistance phenotype of tumor cells by favoring the Pgp intercellular transfer and Pgp ATPase activity. © 2006 Federation of European Biochemical Societies.
