Abstract Mucin 1 (MUC1) is overexpressed in various cancer cells especially in breast cancer cells. There are known research works on the use of anti-MUC1 antibody with docetaxel in ovarian cancer, but there are no data about combined therapy platinum compounds with anti-MUC1 in breast cancer. The aim of the study was to evaluate the antiproliferative properties of a new dinuclear platinum(II) complex (Pt12) used with anti-MUC1 in human breast cancer cells. The dinuclear platinum(II) complex (Pt12) has been synthesized, and its cytotoxicity with anti-MUC1 has been tested in both MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 breast cancer cells. In this study, the effects of Pt12 with anti-MUC1 on collagen and DNA biosynthesis in human breast cancer cells were compared to those evoked by cisplatin and cisplatin with anti-MUC1. The mechanism of action of Pt12 with anti-MUC1 was studied employing flow cytometry assessment of annexin V binding assay. It was found that Pt12 with anti-MUC1 was more active inhibitor of DNA and collagen synthesis as well more cytotoxic agent than Pt12 alone and cisplatin with anti-MUC1. Cytotoxicity of Pt12 with anti-MUC1 against breast cancer cells is due to apoptotic cell death as well as necrotic cell death. These results indicate that the use of Pt12 with anti-MUC1 may constitute a novel strategy in the chemotherapy of breast cancer tumors.
