Multidrug resistance-associated proteins may play crucial roles in the protection of internal organs, particularly the kidneys and liver, from various toxic agents. Little is known about their significance in transplanted organ function and survival. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the frequency of functional ABCC2 4544A>G polymorphism in 165 renal transplant recipients. DNA was isolated from peripheral blood and ABCC2 4544A>G polymorphism was assessed by the polymerase chain reaction-restriction fragment length polymorphism (PCR-RFLP) method. Analysis of allele and genotype frequencies revealed that the presence of ABCC2 4544 A allele was associated with prolonged observation time and may have an impact on a greater frequency of proteinuria. This observation strongly suggested that particular alleles of the ABCC2 gene may contribute to transplantation outcomes.
