The ATP binding cassette B/multidrug-resistance/P-glycoprotein (ABCB/MDR/PGP) subfamily is a member of the ABC protein family. Significant progress has been made in the functional characterization of ABCB genes, particularly in Arabidopsis thaliana. This review evaluates recent advances concerning the plant ABCB subfamilies including their evolution and structure, the involvement and regulation of ABCB-mediated auxin transport, and the roles of ABCBs in plant growth and development. Insights into specific functions of members of the ABCB subfamily and their mediation of various regulatory pathways are also presented.
