In Adriamycin-sensitive and -resistant P388 cells, coincubation with amphotericin B causes a marked increase in Adriamycin retention, as determined by laser flow cytometry. P388/S cells were generally more affected than were P388/R cells. Preincubation with amphotericin B had a greater effect on Adriamycin retention than did co- or postincubation. In splenocytes, bone marrow, and ascites from mice, enhanced Adriamycin retention was seen in all the tissues. However, bone marrow cells showed heterogeneous response, with some populations being more sensitive than others.
