Carminomycin is a new antitumor antibiotic [1].

Antibiotics are a type of antimicrobial used in the treatment of bacterial infection. They can inhibit the growth of bacteria. Antitumor antibiotics are effective agents widely used in cancer chemotherapy [2].

Carminomycin is a new antitumor antibiotic isolated from the mycelium of Actinomadura carminata containing seven components, five of which are biologically active. The more interesting components are components 1, 2 and 3 [1]. In human MCF-7 breast carcinoma and human K562 leukemia cell lines, carminomycin inhibited cell growth with IC50 values of 90 and 60 nM, respectively. In Pgp-expressing MCF-7Dox and K562i/S9 cell lines, carminomycin inhibited cell growth with a similar activity compared with wild type cells, which suggested that carminomycin could circumvent Pgp-mediated multidrug resistant (MDR) [2]. In Micrococcus luteus cells, carminomycin induced one-thread breaks in DNA. In mutant strain DB-7 of M. luteus, carminomycin was more difficult to induce the one-thread breaks, suggesting that UV-endonuclease was probably involved in reparation of the DNA damages induced by carminomycin [3].

In DBA/2 mice with leukemia L-1210, carminomycin (1.5 mg/kg) inhibited the lymphoma colonies by 50% [4].
