Three drug-resistant sublines of the murine macrophage-like cell line J774.2 were selected in vitro for their ability to grow in high concentrations of either taxol, vinblastine, or colchicine. Each contains a major plasma membrane glycoprotein (130-150 kDa), which is barely seen in the drug-sensitive parental cell line. Polyclonal antibodies, raised against the glycoproteins present in the colchicine- and vinblastine-resistant cells, were used to probe for relationships among the three glycoproteins. Our observations suggest that the glycoproteins from the different drug-resistant cell lines share many common domains but are not identical.
