Abstract
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) are an important class of nanomaterial for a wide range of industrial and biomedical applications. The biological properties of a novel AgNP, synthesized from an aqueous leaf extract of Adeniumobesum (AOAgNP), were investigated on MCF-7 breast cancer cells. The formation of AOAgNPs was characterized by ultraviolet-visible absorption spectroscopy and atomic force microscopy. Cytotoxicity, generation of reactive oxygen species, DNA damage, induction of apoptosis and autophagy was determined to assess the toxicity of AOAgNP on MCF-7 cells. A dose-dependent decrease in the cell viability was observed. The IC50 value was calculated at 335 μg/ml. Both qualitative and quantitative evaluation confirmed about 2.5 fold increase in the generation of ROS at highest concentration of 300 μg/ml. A significant (p<0.05) increase in the DNA damage evaluated by comet assay was evident. Flow cytometry revealed significant increase in the apoptotic cells (25%) in AOAgNP treated group as compared to the control. Acridine orange staining of acidic vesicles in exposed cells confirmed the induction of autophagy. These results suggest that AOAgNP increased the level of ROS that leads to the DNA damage, Apoptosis and autophagy in MCF-7 cells.
