We examined the dose–response effect of MnCl2 on the proliferative behavior of triple-negative breast cancer MDA-M231 cells vs. immortalized HB2 cells from breast epithelium taken as nontumoral counterparts.

Abstract

We examined the dose–response effect of MnCl2 on the proliferative behavior of triple-negative breast cancer MDA-M231 cells vs. immortalized HB2 cells from breast epithelium taken as nontumoral counterparts. We also tested the effect of MnCl2 on tumor cell invasiveness in vitro by evaluating the relative invasion indexes through Boyden chamber assays. Moreover, we checked whether cotreatment with both MnCl2 and CdCl2 could modify the observed biological response by MDA-MB231 cells. Our results show a promotional impact of MnCl2 on cell proliferation, with 5 µM concentration inducing the more pronounced increase after 96-h exposure, which is not shared by HB2 cells. Exposure to 5 µM MnCl2 induced also an elevation of the relative invasion index of cancer cells. The Mn-mediated stimulatory effects were counteracted by cotreatment with CdCl2. These data support the concept that human exposure to high environmental concentrations of Mn may increase the risk of carcinogenesis and metastasis by prompting the expansion and dissemination of triple-negative breast cancer cells. On the other hand, the Mn-counteracting anticancer property of Cd looks promising and deserves a more detailed characterization of the involved intracellular targets aimed to the molecular modeling of specific antineoplastic agents against malignant breast cancer spreading.
