Major vault protein (MVP) is identical to lung-resistance related protein (LRP). Its shape is reminiscent of the nucleopore central plug. Treatment of cells with estradiol increases the amount of MVP in nuclear extract. The hormone-dependent interaction of vaults with ER is prevented in vitro by sodium molybdate. Antibodies to progesterone and glucocorticoid receptors are also able to co-immunoprecipitate the MVP. Reportedly, the lung-resistance related protein (LRP) is identical to human MVP. LRP is overexpressed in many neoplastic tissues and cell lines indicating a poor response to chemotherapy.
