Abstract

The present study aimed to investigated the antiproliferative potential of Mosinone-A on cell proliferation, apoptosis and cell cycle proteins during 7, 12-dimethylbenz[a]anthracene (DMBA) induced hamster buccal pouch (HBP) carcinogenesis. A total number of 40 golden Syrian hamsters were randomized into 4 groups of 10 animals in each. Group I animals were served as untreated control. Groups II and III animals were painted with 0.5% DMBA in liquid paraffin three times per week for 14 weeks on the left buccal pouches. Group III animals were orally administered with Mosinone-A (2 mg kg-1 b.wt) starting one week before the exposure to the carcinogen and continued on days alternate to DMBA painting, until the sacrification of the animals. Groups IV animals were received Mosinone-A alone throughout the experimental period. Topical application of DMBA for 14 weeks induced buccal pouch carcinomas associated with increased expression of Cox-2, P21, iNos and SIAT1 whereas decreased expression of Bax, Cleaved caspase-9, P12DOC-1, p16INK4A and p15INK4B. Oral administration of Mosinone-A significantly inhibited the development of HBP carcinomas as revealed by decreased expression of Cox-2, P21, iNos and  SIAT1 and over expression  Bax, Cleaved caspase-9, P12DOC-1, p16INK4A and  p15INK4B. The result of the present study indicates that Mosinone-A can exerts protective effects against DMBA induced buccal pouch carcinogenesis by inhibiting cell proliferation and inducing differentiation and apoptosis.

Key words: Oral cancer; Mosinone-A; DMBA; hamster; carcinogenesis; apoptosis
