Abstract Recently, a large number of tyrosine kinase inhibitors(TKIs) have been developed as anticancer agents. These TKIs can specifically and selectively inhibit tumor cell growth and metastasis by targeting various tyrosine kinases and thereby interfering with cellular signaling pathways. The therapeutic potential of TKIs has been hindered by multidrug resistance(MDR), which is commonly caused by overexpression of ATP-binding cassette(ABC) membrane transporters. Interestingly, some TKIs have also been found to reverse MDR by directly inhibiting the function of ABC transporters and enhancing the efficacy of conventional chemotherapeutic drugs. In this review, we discuss ABC transporter-mediated MDR to TKIs and MDR reversal by TKIs.
