Customer Review

    Mitomycin C purchased from MCE. Usage Cited in: Sci Rep. 2017 Jun 30;7(1):4469.

    In order to normalize the potential effect of cell proliferation, Mitomycin C is added to the culture media to make the cells uniformly arrested. The results show that all migration cell indexes reduced after adding Mitomycin C than those observed without Mitomycin C. Knockdown of RAD51-AS1 still inhibits cell migration (A) and invasion of SKOV3, SKOV3.ip and HO8910 cells (B), while overexpression of RAD51-AS1 only increased cell invasion capacity of the OVCAR3 cells, not in the Hey cells (C).

    Curcumin inhibits the migration of BCPAP cells. Migration of cancer cells is assayed by wound-healing assay. Cells are cultured to nearly confluent cell monolayer and pretreated with Mitomycin C (10 μg/mL) for 2 h, followed by either DMSO or different dosages of curcumin for 6 h, before cells are wounded using yellow pipette tips. The cells are washed with PBS, and cultured for additional 24 h at 37 °C. (A) Photographs are taken after wound initially made and healing for 24 h. Data are represent

    IC50 & Target

    DNA synthesis[1]

    In Vitro

    The HCT116 (p53-/-) cells are minimally sensitive to either Mitomycin C or TRAIL alone. However, surprisingly, combination treatment with MMC and TRAIL decreases cell viability significantly. Although Mitomycin C and TRAIL alone are moderately effective, Mitomycin C substantially enhances the effect of TRAIL on suppression of the cell proliferation. Mitomycin C and TRAIL treatment alone induces 9.5% and 35.0% apoptosis, respectively. However, combination treatment with Mitomycin C and TRAIL enhances apoptosis to 66.6%[1]. Mitomycin C is a cytotoxic chemotherapeutic agent that causes DNA damage in the form of DNA cross-links as well as a variety of DNA monoadducts and is known to induce p53[2].

    In Vivo

    Mice bearing xenografted HCT116 (p53-/-) colon tumors and HT-29 colon tumors are treated with Mitomycin C (i.p., 1 mg/kg) and TRAIL (i.v., 100 μg) every other day. Animals are treated with 10 consecutive cycles of the combination therapy regimen. The combination therapy suppresses tumor growth significantly and does not impact the weight of the mice, indicating that the therapeutic combination of Mitomycin C and TRAIL is well-tolerated and has anti-tumor activity in vivo[1]. Intravesical Mitomycin C instillations has an effect on body weight that is not observed in normal, NaCl instilled or Epirubicin instilled rats. After 3 consecutive weekly instillations of 1 mg/mL Mitomycin C there is almost no weight gain, whereas rats in the other 3 groups has a statistically significant weight gain compared with MMC treated rats[3].

    Cell Assay

    Colon adenocarcinoma HCT116 and HT-29 human colon cancer cells are used. The CellTiter-Glo Luminescent Cell Viability Assay is used to measure cell viability, which use a unique, stable form of luciferase to measure ATP as an indicator of viable cells, and the luminescent signal produced is proportional to the number of viable cells present in culture. Cells are pretreated with Mitomycin C (5 μM) for 12 h or 24 h, and then exposed to different concentrations of TRAIL for 12 h. An equal volume (100 μL) of CellTiter-GloTM reagent is added and the solution is mixed gently for 2 min on an orbital shaker. Mixture is incubated at room temperature for 10 min to allow luminescent signal to stabilize, and then imaging is performed using the Xenogen IVIS system to quantify the cell viability[1].

    Animal Administration

    Four- to 6-wk-old NCr nude mice are treated with Mitomycin C (1 mg/kg) by intraperitoneal injection for 24 h, followed by one intravenous dose of purified rhTRAIL (100 μg). As a negative control, a subset of the mice are injected (i.p. and i.v.) with saline (vehicle) at the same frequency of treatment. Animals are treated for 3 consecutive weeks. The tumor size is monitored every week using caliper measurements of the tumor volume.
    Young adult female Wistar rats at age 13 weeks with a median weight of 217 g (range 187 to 255) are randomized into 4 groups of 10 each, namely a normal group with no instillations, an NaCl 0.9% or placebo group that received instillations with the solvent of the chemotherapeutic agents, an Mitomycin C (1 mg/mL) group and an Epirubicin (1 mg/mL) group.
