The endogenous neurotransmitter, noradrenaline, exerts anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective effects in vivo and in vitro. Reduced noradrenaline levels results in increased inflammation and neuronal damage. The primary source of noradrenaline in the central nervous system is tyrosine hydroxylase (TH)‑positive neurons, located in the locus coeruleus (LC). TH is the rate‑limiting enzyme for noradrenaline synthesis; therefore, regulation of TH protein expression and intrinsic enzyme activity represents the central means for controlling the synthesis of noradrenaline...

Type 2 diabetes is characterized by insulin resistance in target tissues and hyperglycemia. Catalpol is a natural product isolated from the root of Rehmannia glutinosa, which has been reported to produce the effect of anti-diabetes in recent reports. The goal of the current study is to investigate the therapeutic effects of catalpol on hepatic insulin resistance in type 2 diabetes and elucidate the underlying cellular mechanisms. Type 2 diabetes in vivo was induced by combined high-fat diet (HFD) and streptozotocin (STZ) injection in C57BL/6J mice...

To investigate the effects of catalpol on corneal neovascularization (CNV) and associated inflammation, eye drops (5 mM catalpol or PBS) were administered four times daily to alkali‑burn rat models of CNV and inflammation. Clinical evaluations of CNV and the degree of inflammation were performed on days 0, 4, 7, 10 and 14 under slit lamp microscopy. Eyes were collected on day 14 and prepared for hematoxylin and eosin, and immunofluorescence staining; corneal cell apoptosis was investigated via terminal deoxynucleotidyl transferase‑mediated nick end labeling (TUNEL) staining...

Zeng Ye Tang, a famous prescription consisting of Xuanshen, Maidong and Shengdi (5:4:4), has been used in China for a long time to treat diabetes caused by excessive heat with yin deficiency. Although many studies have investigated the pharmacological effects of Zeng Ye Tang, the compounds responsible for its hypoglycemic effect have not been identified. In this study, 50 compounds in Zeng Ye Tang were identified by high-performance liquid chromatography coupled with tandem quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry...

The most important components of Plantago lanceolata L. leaves are catalpol, aucubin, and acteoside (=verbascoside). These bioactive compounds possess different pharmacological effects: anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, antineoplastic, and hepatoprotective. The aim of this study was to protect Plantago lanceolata extract from hydrolysis and to improve its antioxidant effect using self-nano-emulsifying drug delivery systems (SNEDDS). Eight SNEDDS compositions were prepared, and their physical properties, in vitro cytotoxicity, and in vivo AST/ALT values were investigated...

Synapse loss is one of the common factors contributing to cognitive disorders, such as Alzheimer's disease (AD), which is manifested by the impairment of basic cognitive functions including memory processing, perception, problem solving, and language. The current therapies for patients with cognitive disorders are mainly palliative; thus, regimens preventing and/or delaying dementia progression are urgently needed. In this study, we evaluated the effects of catalpol, isolated from traditional Chinese medicine Rehmannia glutinosa, on synaptic plasticity in aged rat models...

Catalpol, an iridoid glucoside compound, is reported to possess diverse pharmacological actions. However, its effects on osteosarcoma are little to be known. In the present study, we showed that catalpol could strongly suppress osteosarcoma progression. Catalpol dose-dependently reduced the cancer cell viability. The migration of osteosarcoma cells was also consistently suppressed by catalpol treatment using the wound healing and transwell migration analysis. Catalpol reduced the expressions of Kras, receptor for activated C-kinase 1(RACK1) and matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-2 in a dose-dependent manner, revealing the blockage of migration...

Smoking is an important factor that causes periodontitis, which manifests as alveolar bone injury and absorption, and has a high incidence and unfavorable treatment efficacy. Nicotine causes ischemia and inflammation of the periodontium and inhibits the mineralization of alveolar bones. Previous studies have revealed the anti‑tumor biological activities of catalpol, in addition to neuroprotection and anti‑inflammation. The present study therefore investigated the underlying protective mechanism of catalpol in alveolar bone injury...

Previous studies showed that borneol could promote some drugs crossing through the blood-brain-barrier (BBB) at certain conditions. However, the mechanism has not been clarified yet. This study aimed to investigate the effect of bornrol on promoting catalpol and puerarin through BBB and explore the relevant mechanism. The focal cerebral ischemic rats were divided into 7 groups randomly and then were administered corresponding drugs: model group (M, solvent), catalpol-puerarin group (ZG, catalpol 45 mg•kg⁻¹+puerarin 200 mg•kg⁻¹), catalpol-puerarin-bornrol group(ZGB, catalpol 45 mg•kg⁻¹+puerarin 200 mg•kg⁻¹ +bornrol 200 mg•kg⁻¹), catalpol-bornrol group(ZB, catalpol 45 mg•kg⁻¹ +bornrol 200 mg•kg⁻¹), puerarin-bornrol group(GB, puerarin 200 mg•kg⁻¹ +bornrol 200 mg•kg⁻¹), butoxamine-ZG group(BTX+ZG, butoxamine 1...

Catalpol is an effective active ingredient that functions as a diuretic and laxative, and exhibits blood sugar-lowering, liver protective, anti-aging and anticancer effects. In traditional Chinese medicine, catalpol is believed to be Yin nourishing. The anticancer effect of catalpol on human HCT116 colorectal cancer cells were investigated and the mechanism of action was evaluated. Cellular viability was detected using an MTT assay. Caspase-3 and caspase-9 activity, cellular apoptosis and nucleic morphology were analyzed using caspase-3 and caspase-9 activity assay kits, flow cytometric assays and DAPI staining assay, respectively...

Defective expression of NAD-dependent protein deacetylase sirtuin 1 (SIRT1) triggers endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress and epithelial cell apoptosis in inflammatory bowel disease. MicroRNA-132 (miR-132) has been shown to regulate inflammatory processes through down-regulating SIRT1. Catalpol is a potential antioxidant and anti-apoptotic agent in inflammatory disease. This study aimed to investigate the signaling mechanisms underlying catalpol-induced SIRT1 activation and inhibition of ER stress in a rat colitis model...

Of these, none of four aromatic (p-methoxybenzoyl, isovanilloyl, veratroyl, caffeoyl) 6-O-esters of aucubin and 6″-O-benzoyl mussaenosidic acid, had been reported from nature before. Similarly, three simple iridoid glucosides, two esters of 6-O-rhamnopyranosylcatapol, and two phenylethanoid glucosides, as well as 1-O-benzoyl-3-α-glucuronosylglycerol, and 1-O-β-benzoyl rutinoside were isolated from Veronica pinguifolia (syn...

BACKGROUND: Multiple sclerosis (MS) as an autoimmune disorder is a common disease occurring in central nervous system (CNS) and the remyelination plays a pivotal role in the alleviating neurological impairment in the MS. Catalpol, an effective component extracted from the Chinese herb Radix Rehmanniae, which has been proved protective in cerebral diseases. METHODS: To determine the protective effects and mechanisms of Catalpol on MS, the mice with experimental autoimmune encephalomyelitis (EAE) were induced by myelin oligodendrocyte glycoprotein (MOG) 35-55, as a model for human MS...

Paclitaxel is a chemotherapeutic agent that causes peripheral neuropathy as its major dose-limiting side effect. However, the peripheral neuropathy is difficult to manage. A study we recently conducted showed that repetitive administration of aucubin as a prophylactic inhibits paclitaxel-induced mechanical allodynia. However, the mechanisms underlying the anti-allodynic activity of aucubin, which is a major component of Plantaginis Semen, was unclear. In addition to mechanical allodynia, aucubin inhibited spontaneous and mechanical stimuli-induced firing in spinal dorsal horn neurons; however, catalpol, a metabolite of aucubin, did not show these effects...

Catalpol and puerarin are two monomers of Rehmannia glutinosa and Lobed Kudzuvine Root, which are two herbs commonly used together in ancient prescriptions of traditional Chinese medicine for cerebral ischemia. Our previous study shows that the lyophilized powder of the two monomers improved the outcome of cerebral ischemia excellently in rodents. However, if it protects vessels from ischemia is unknown. The present research studied the protection of lyophilized powder of catalpol and puerarin (CP) on endothelial cells and the relative mechanism in vivo and in vitro...
