Abstract: Tumor cells intensely utilize glutamine as the major source of respiratory fuel. Glutamine-analogue acivicin inhibits tumor growth and tumor-induced angiogenesis in Ehrlich ascites carcinoma. In the present study, antitumor properties of acivicin in combination with glutaminase enzyme is reported. Acivicin along with E. coli glutaminase synergistically reduced in vitro proliferation and matrigel invasion of human MCF-7 and OAW-42 cells. Effects of single and combined treatments with acivicin and glutaminase on angiogenic factors were also analyzed in these cell lines. Co-administration of the treatment agents inhibits the release of VEGF and MMP-9 by cells in culture supernatant significantly than single agent treatments. The result suggests that combination of acivicin with glutaminase may provide a better therapeutic option than either of them given separately for treating human breast and ovarian cancer. However, further studies are required to be conducted in vivo for its confirmation.
