BackgroundBioactivity-guided fractionation of extracts of Aglaia loheri Blanco Meliaceae yielded a cytotoxic isolate, termed Maldi 531.2M + H. This phenolic ester was further investigated for its in vitro cytotoxicity toward human CCRF-CEM leukemia cells and their multi-drug resistant MDR subline, CEM-ADR5000. The intrinsic mitochondrial membrane potential ΔΨm and induction of apoptosis by this isolate were evaluated.

MethodsChromatography techniques, mass spectrometry and proton NMR were employed to isolate Maldi 531.2M + H. XTT cell proliferation and viability assay was used for cytotoxic test, and JC-15’,5’,6,6’,-tetrachloro-1,1’,3,3’-tetraethylbenzimidazoyl carbocyanine iodide was used to assess ΔΨm and initiation of apoptosis; Annexin V-FITC-PI staining was employed to analyse apoptosis.

ResultsMaldi 531.2M + H was cytotoxic towards both CCRF-CEM and CEM-ADR5000 cells with IC50 values of 0.02 and 0.03 μM, respectively. The mitochondrial membrane potential ΔΨm of MDR cells was significantly reduced in a dose-dependent manner leading to apoptosis as detected by flow cytometric Annexin V-FITC- PI staining.

ConclusionMaldi 531.2M + H may be a potential anti-cancer drug candidate whose mode of action include reduction of the mitochondrial membrane potential and induction of apoptosis.
