Abstract: The central theme of this thesis is the exploration of new modulators of ABC transport proteins by the design and synthesis of a series of triazole-bridged flavonoid dimers. Chapter 1 briefly introduces the background of multidrug resistance, ABC transport proteins, click chemistry as well as the objective of this thesis. Chapter 2 describes a rapid generation of a flavonoid dimer library using "click chemistry". Following this, a high-throughput screening led to the discovery of some highly potent and safe MRP1 modulators is presented. Chapter 3 elucidates the design and synthesis of a series of triazole bridged flavonoid heterodimers and homodimers. Besides, the compounds are evaluated for their potency in reversing BCRP-mediated multidrug resistance. Structure activity relationship of flavonoid dimers towards modulating BCRP is discussed. Finally, a homodimer, Ac22Az8, as a non-cytotoxic, potent and selective BCRP modulator is presented. Chapter 4 describes the design and synthesis a series of triazole bridged flavonoid heterodimers. Following this, the compounds evaluated for their potency in reversing multidrug resistance in P-gp, BCRP and MRP1. Chapter 5 describes the summary future work of this thesis.
