Diabetic cardiomyopathy (DCM) is an important cause of heart failure in diabetic patients. The present study sought to explore the potential effects of dihydromyricetin (DHM) on DCM and its possible mechanism. A diabetic model was induced by intraperitoneal injection of streptozotocin (STZ) in C57BL/6J mice. Two weeks after the STZ injection, mice were randomly allocated into the following 4 groups for treatment: the control group (CON), the control treated with DHM group (CON + DHM), the diabetes group (DM), and the diabetes treated with DHM group (DM + DHM)...

Increasing evidence has demonstrated that dihydromyricetin (DMY) contains highly effective antioxidative, anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-diabetic properties. Nevertheless, the underlying hepatoprotective mechanisms of DMY have infrequently been reported thus far. In the present study, C57BL/6 mice were fed with the Lieber-DeCarli diet containing alcohol or isocaloric maltose dextrin as a control diet with or without DMY (75 and 150mg/kg/d bw) for 6 weeks. DMY significantly attenuated hepatic enzyme release, hepatic lipid peroxidation and triglyceride deposition induced by chronic alcohol exposure...

Dihydroflavonol-4-reductase (DFR) is a key enzyme in the reduction of dihydroflavonols to leucoanthocyanidins in both anthocyanin biosynthesis and proanthocyanidin accumulation. In many plant species, it is encoded by a gene family, however, how the different copies evolve either to function in different tissues or at different times or to specialize in the use of different but related substrates needs to be further investigated, especially in monocot plants. In this study, a total of eight putative DFR-like genes were firstly cloned from Freesia hybrida...

The plant flavonol dihydromyricetin (DHM) was reported to induce apoptosis in human hepatocarcinoma HepG2 cells. This study was undertaken to elucidate the underlying molecular mechanism of action of DHM. In the study, DHM down-regulated Akt expression and its phosphorylation at Ser473, up-regulated the levels of mitochondrial proapoptotic proteins Bax and Bad, and inhibited the phosphorylation of Bad at Ser136 and Ser112. It also inhibited the expression of the antiapoptotic protein Bcl-2 and enhanced the cleavage and activation of caspase-3 as well as the degradation of its downstream target poly(ADP-ribose) polymerase...

Obesity is often accompanied by decreases in the proportion of skeletal muscle slow-twitch fibers and insulin sensitivity. Increased plasma non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) levels are responsible for obesity-associated insulin resistance. Palmitate, one of the most elevated plasma NEFA in obesity, has been recognized as the principle inducer of insulin resistance. The present study showed that increased plasma NEFA levels were negatively linked to slow-twitch fiber proportion and insulin sensitivity, while slow-twitch fiber proportion was positively correlated to insulin sensitivity in high fat diet (HFD)-fed and ob/ob mice...

The accumulation of proanthocyanidins is regulated by a complex of transcription factors composed of R2R3 MYB, basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH), and WD-40 proteins which activate the promoters of biosynthetic genes. In poplar, MYB134 is known to regulate proanthocyanidin biosynthesis by activating key flavonoid genes. Here we characterize a second MYB regulator of proanthocyanidins, MYB115. Transgenic poplar overexpressing MYB115 showed a high proanthocyanidin phenotype and reduced salicinoid accumulation, similar to the effects of MYB134 overexpression...

Rare red currants colors caused by low anthocyanin content in the pink and a lack of anthocyanins in the white cultivar correlated with low ANS gene expression, enzyme activity, and increased sugar/acid ratios. Changes in the contents of polyphenols, sugars, and organic acids in berries of the three differently colored Ribes rubrum L. cultivars ('Jonkheer van Tets', 'Pink Champagne', and 'Zitavia') were determined by LC-MS and HPLC at 4 sampling times during the last month of fruit ripening. The activities of the main flavonoid enzymes, chalcone synthase/chalcone isomerase (CHS/CHI), flavanone 3-hydroxylase (FHT), and dihydroflavonol 4-reductase (DFR), and the expression of anthocyanidin synthase (ANS) were additionally measured...

A novel deep eutectic solvent (DES)-DMSO cosolvent system has been, for the first time, successfully used as the reaction medium for the enzymatic acylation of dihydromyricetin (DMY) catalyzed by the immobilized lipase from Aspergillus niger (ANL). The cosolvent mixture, ChCl:Glycerol-DMSO (1:3, v/v) proved to be the optimal medium. With the newly developed cosolvent, the initial reaction rate of enzymatic acylation of DMY achieved 11.1 mM/h and the conversion of DMY was 91.6%. ANL@PD-MNPs is stable and recyclable in this cosolvent, offering 90% conversion rate after repeated use of 5 times...

Natural antineoplastic drug development is crucial to treatment of clinical oncology. Dihydromyricetin, a bioactive flavonoid compound was extracted from the stems and leaves of Ampelopsis grossedentata. It exhibited anticancer activity and induced apoptosis in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells according to our previous studies. In this study, we demonstrated that DHM could significantly inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis in HepG2 cells with MTT and Flow Cytometry methods. It is very interesting that we found DHM could regulate TGF-β signal pathway and which has a crosstalk with P53, Smad3 and P-Smad2/3 proteins...

Natural compounds have been attracting huge attention because of their broad therapeutic properties with specificity in their action in human health care as functional foods, pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals. However poor bioavailability and reduced bioactivity attributed to poor solubility and instability is the major drawback hindering the incorporation of these therapeutically potential molecules in novel drug delivery systems. Based on the findings of reported research investigations; complexation of poorly water soluble phytochemicals with cyclodextrins has emerged to be a promising approach to improve their aqueous solubility, stability, rate of dissolution and bioavailability...

The gastrointestinal (GI) stability of three flavonoids, dihydromyricetin (DMY), myricetin (MYR), and myricitrin (MYT), was examined in simulated physiological fluids. Several factors that may influence the degradation rate of theses flavonoids were evaluated, including pH and the presence of pepsin and pancreatin enzymes. We found that GI stability followed the order of MYT > DMY > MYR. These flavonoids were stable in simulated gastric fluids and buffer solutions (pH 1.2), but encountered a pseudo-first-order kinetic degradation in simulated intestinal fluids and buffer solutions (pH 6...

Dihydromyricetin (DMY), extracted from the Chinese herbal medicine Ampelopsis grossedentata, possesses antitumor potential in different types of human cancer cells. Hence, its effects on drug resistance and molecular mechanisms in colorectal cancer (CRC) are still unknown. In our present study, we observed that DMY enhanced the chemosensitivity to oxaliplatin (OXA). DMY increased OXA-induced apoptosis and reduced 5(6)-carboxy-2',7'-dichlorofluorescein accumulation in OXA-resistant CRC HCT116/L-OHP cells. Our mechanistic study suggested that DMY treatment inhibited multidrug resistance protein 2 (MRP2) expression levels and promoter activity, indicating that DMY reduced not only MRP2 transcriptional and translational levels but also its function...

Many flavonoids are reported to be partial agonists of PPARγ and exert antidiabetic effects with fewer side effects compared with full agonists. Here, we assessed the effects of flavonoid dihydromyricetin (DHM) on glucose homeostasis in male Zucker diabetic fatty rats. Animals were treated with DHM (50-200  mg kg(-1)) or rosiglitazone (4  mg kg(-1)) once a day for 8 weeks. We found that DHM reduced fasting blood glucose and delayed the onset of hyperglycemia by 4 weeks. Furthermore, DHM preserved pancreatic β-cell mass, elevated adiponectin and improved lipid profile more vigorously than rosiglitazone...
