Several molecular mechanisms that contribute to drug resistance have been identified, including increased mRNA levels for two types of efflux pump genes: the ATP binding cassette transporter CDRs (CDR1 and CDR2) and the major facilitator MDR1 (Mah, 2012; White et al.

To investigate whether silent mutations play a role, Gottesman and his colleagues worked with different varieties of the gene called MDR1, which makes P-glycoprotein.
