Although various chemotherapeutic agents have been developed, still there is no successful treatment against multidrug resistance acquired by the cancer cells due to high P-gp expression in the cell walls. In the effort to synthesize new compounds that overcome multidrug resistance, we have synthesized a novel series of N-unsubstituted and N-substituted [1,4]-DHPs and evaluated these derivatives for P-gp inhibitory activity using Rhodamine B as P-gp substrate. From the in vitro assay, it has been found that N-substituted [1,4]-DHPs exhibits improved activity then N-unsubstituted compounds. The aliphatic substitution at 1st position of unsymmetrical [1,4]-DHPs resulted in good fluorescence uptake.
