Development of new potential drugs to overcome multidrug resistance to chemotherapy is a big challenge for cancer treatment. Attention is also given to the natural compounds and their derivatives. The study aimed at evaluating the impact of a new chalcone derivative (1C) on multidrug resistant cell lines, focusing on P-glycoprotein (P-gp, ABCB1) inhibition, as well as 1C-doxorubicin interaction in vitro. Cytotoxic and antiproliferative effects of the 1C compound were assessed by thiazolyl blue tetrazolium bromide (MTT) method in mouse T-cell lymphoma and human colon adenocarcinoma cells expressing ABCB1. Alterations in ABCB1 activity were evaluated by rhodamine 123 accumulation assay using flow cytometry. Drug-drug interaction was studied using combination assay. Our results confirmed antiproliferative, cytotoxic, as well as ABCB1 inhibitory potential of 1C in both tested ABCB1-expressing cancer cell lines. Furthermore, 1C displayed synergistic interaction with doxorubicin. Our results suggest the 1C chalcone derivative as a promising compound against resistant lymphoma and colon cancer, which could be used in monotherapy or in combination with other chemotherapeutics.
