Objective: To determine the immunolocalization and cellular expression of adenosine triphosphate-binding cassette (ABC) proteins viz. breast cancer resistance protein (BCRP) and multidrug resistance protein 1 (MDR1) in canine mammary tumour (CMT), as well as to correlate their expression with the histological subtypes and grades of CMT with a view towards therapeutic implications.

Methods: Fifty-three cases of malignant CMT were included in the study. The histological sections taken from archived paraffin blocks were subjected to histopathology and imunohistochemistry for sub-typing, grading, immunolocalization and cellular expression of BCRP and MDR1 and their interrelation.

Results: Both BCRP and MDR1 were mainly immulocalized in cellular membranes and to a lesser extent in the cytoplasm of the cancerous epithelial cells and stromal connective tissue. Carcinosarcomas followed by carcinomas and sarcomas revealed decreasing expression of both BCRP and MDR1 proteins. A positive and an inverse correlation between BCRP and MDR1 expression, respectively was observed with the increasing grade of CMT.

Conclusion: The study implicates the role of ABC transporter proteins in possible chemotherapeutic drug resistance that may vary with the subtype and grade of CMT.
