We have established RIKEN full-length cDNA microarray containing 20K set of unique mouse genes. Using this microarray system, we examined to identify the target genes and the genetic pathways which could contribute to acquire the resistance against the exposure to an anti-cancer drug, etoposide in breast cancer cell lines of mice. The comparison of the expression profiles between FM3A cells and the etoposide-resistant Fvp^rB350 cells treated with etoposide or paclitaxel reveals that a large number of genes including apoptosis-related genes and other unknown genes were differentially expressed. The analysis of the gene expression relative to drug resistance may lead to the discovery of novel targets for cancer treatments.
