(-)-Stepholidine enhances K+ depolarization-induced activation of synaptosomal tyrosine 3-monooxygenase from rat striatum. (1/346)

AIM: To study the mechanism of K+ depolarization-induced activation of synaptosomal tyrosine 3-monooxygenase (TM) in rat striatum and the effect of (-)-stepholidine (SPD) on this activation. METHODS: The TM was assayed for DOPA by HPLC-ECD; the activities of Ca2+/calmodulin (CaM)-dependent protein kinase (PK II) and Ca2+/phosphoinositide-dependent protein kinase (PKC) were assayed using histidine as substrate. RESULTS: The incubation of striatal synaptosomes in K(+)-riched (60 mmol.L-1) medium resulted in a marked activation of TM. PKC inhibitor polymyxin B (PMB) completely blocked the activation of K+ 60 mmol.L-1 on TM. Selective D2 receptor agonist quinpirole (QP), Ca2+ removal from incubation medium and CaM antagonist W7 failed to affect the activation. However, SPD enhanced the activation of K+ 60 mmol.L-1 on TM. Meanwhile, the incubation in K+ 60 mmol.L-1 also activated PKC. Neither QP nor SPD affected K+ depolarization-induced activation of PKC. CONCLUSION: The activation of K+ depolarization on synaptosomal TM is enhanced by SPD and this activation is mediated by PKC rather than by PK II.  (+info)

Effects of berberine of L- and T-type calcium channels in guinea pig ventricular myocytes. (2/346)

AIM: To study the effects of berberine (Ber) on L-(ICa,L) and T-type (ICa,T) channels in isolated guinea pig ventricular myocytes. METHODS: Using whole cell patch-clamp recording technique. RESULTS: Ber 10, 30 mumol.L-1 inhibited the ICa, L from 1400 +/- 247 pA to 978 +/- 204 pA (n = 5 cells of 5 guinea pigs, P < 0.05), and to 664 +/- 179 pA (n = 5, P < 0.01), respectively. The inhibitory effect was concentration-dependent and non-frequency-dependent. The peak value of ICa,L in the current-voltage relationship was decreased. Ber affected the inactivation kinetics of ICa,L. The half activation potential (V0.5) was shifted from -27.8 mV to -34.2 mV and the slope factor (kappa) was changed from 9.22 into 13.03. Ber did not affect the activation kinetics. Ber 10 and 30 mumol.L-1 also inhibited ICa,T (from 154 +/- 80 pA to 101 +/- 78 pA, and to 48 +/- 45 pA, n = 8 cells of 5 guinea pigs, P < 0.05). CONCLUSION: Ber possessed blocking effects on both L- and T-type calcium channels.  (+info)

Enhancement of (-)-stepholidine on protein phosphorylation of a dopamine- and cAMP-regulated phosphoprotein in denervated striatum of oxidopamine-lesioned rats. (3/346)

AIM: To study effects of (-)-stepholidine (SPD) on the phosphorylation of a dopamine- and cAMP-regulated phosphoprotein (DARPP-32) in the striatum of oxidopamine-lesioned rats. METHODS: The amount of dephospho-DARPP-32 was measured by a back-phosphorylation assay. RESULTS: In the striatum of control rats, SPD per se had no effect on the phosphorylation of DARPP-32, but it antagonized the decrease by 28% of dephospho-DARPP-32 induced by the D1 agonist SK&F-38393. In the denervated striatum of oxidopamine-lesioned rats, SPD decreased the amount of dephospho-DARPP-32 by 44%. The effect of SPD was completely counteracted by the concomitant administration of the D1 antagonist Sch-23390. CONCLUSION: SPD exhibits D1 agonistic action on DARPP-32 phosphorylation in the denervated striatum of oxidopamine-lesioned rats, but it acts as a D1 antagonist in normal striatum.  (+info)

Differential inhibitory effects of protoberberines on sterol and chitin biosyntheses in Candida albicans. (4/346)

The anti-Candida potentials of 12 Korean medicinal plants were explored: methanol extracts from Coptis rhizoma and Phellodendron amurense caused significant inhibition of growth of Candida albicans, Candida glabrata, Candida krusei and Candida parapsilosis. The predominant active components of the extracts were the protoberberines berberine and palmatine; the most potent inhibition of growth was exhibited by berberine on C. krusei (MIC <4 mg/L) and palmatine on C. parapsilosis (MIC 16 mg/L). Both berberine and palmatine inhibited the in-vivo rate of incorporation of L-[methyl-14C]methionine into C-24 of ergosterol in C. albicans (50% inhibition concentration (IC50 values), 25 microM and 300 microM, respectively); this result suggests that sterol 24-methyl transferase (24-SMT) is one of the cellular targets for the antifungal activity of the protoberberines. In-vitro 24-SMT activity in microsomes from the yeast growth form of C. albicans was inhibited by both berberine (inhibition constant (Ki) 232 microM) and palmatine (Ki 257 microM) in a non-competitive manner; inhibition of 24-SMT was more marked for the mycelial form than for the yeast growth form of this organism. Palmatine inhibited chitin synthase from both the yeast and mycelial growth phases of C. albicans in a non-competitive manner (Ki 780 microM). The effects of protoberberines, extracted from established medicinal plants, on both sterol and cell wall biosyntheses in pathogenic fungi indicate that the potential of these compounds, or their semi-synthetic derivatives, as a novel class of antifungal agents should be investigated more fully.  (+info)

p-Chlorobenzyltetrahydroberberine inhibits vascular smooth muscle contractions caused by Ca2+. (5/346)

AIM: To investigate influences of p-chlorobenzyltetrahydroberberine (CPU-86017) and levothyroxin (Lev) on vascular smooth muscle (VSM) contractions by intracellular Ca2+ release and calcium entry. METHODS: Three kinds of contractions of rat thoracic aortic rings were used to compare suppression by CPU-86017, bepridil (Bep), verapamil (Ver), and nimodipine (Nim) in euthyroid- and Lev-induced hyperthyroidism rats. RESULTS: The IC50 of CPU-86017 on KCl-induced contractions of euthyroid and hyperthyroid VSM were 80 (36-179) and 121 (62-236) mumol.L-1, respectively. The potency of CPU-86017 was approximate to 1/10 of Bep and 1/100 of Ver and Nim. Suppressions of Ver and Nim on hyperthyroid VSM in Ca(2+)-free solution were greatly attenuated by -86% and -95%, respectively. Slight or no change in activity of CPU-86017 and Bep was found. Contractions on adding Ca2+ into Ca(2+)-free medium were suppressed by CPU-86017 and its potencies in euthyroid and hyperthyroid rats were not different. CONCLUSION: CPU-86017 is more potent to suppress Ca2+ entry than intracellular calcium mobilization and Lev enhances both.  (+info)

Effect of tetrahydropalmatine analogs on Fos expression induced by formalin-pain. (6/346)

AIM: To study the effect of tetrahydropalmatine (THP) analogs on Fos protein expression induced by formalin-pain and elucidate analgesic mechanism of THP analogs. METHODS: The pain response to Sprague Dawley rats was induced with formalin injected s.c. into the plantar surface of the right hindpaw. Fos protein expression in brain and spinal cord was investigated with immunohistochemistry. The numbers of Fos-like immunoreactive (FLI) neurons were counted with Leica Q570 image analyzer. RESULTS: In the groups of THP analogs and D2 antagonist spiperone, FLI neurons induced by intraperitoneal (i.p.) injection of THP analogs and spiperone were mainly located in the striatum and accumbens nucleus, and a few FLI neurons were also in sensorimotor cortex. In the D1 antagonist, D1 agonist, D2 agonist, saline and vehicle groups, FLI neurons were seldom seen in the striatum and accumbens nucleus. Moreover, the Fos protein expression induced by l-THP and spiperone could be prevented by the pre-treatment of the D2 agonist quinpirole but not D1 agonist SKF38393. In the formalin-pain group, FLI neurons were mainly distributed in ascending pain afferent system (APAS) and descending pain modulation system (DPMS). Following i.p. THP analogs, however, the numbers of FLI neurons induced by formalin-pain in the APAS, such as dorsal horn (mainly laminae I, II, IV-VI) were markedly decreased, while the numbers of FLI neurons in the DPMS, such as periaqueductal gray (PAG) and reticular paragigantocellular lateral nucleus (RPLN) were significantly increased. CONCLUSION: THP analogs enhanced the activity of brainstem DPMS by the blockade of D2 receptors in the striatum and accumbens nucleus, and sequentially inhibited the inputs of peripheral pain afferent message in spinal cord level.  (+info)

Berberine modulates expression of mdr1 gene product and the responses of digestive track cancer cells to Paclitaxel. (7/346)

Berberine is the major constituent of Coptis chinese and is commonly used in Chinese herbal medicine to treat patients with gastrointestinal disorders. In this study, using flow cytometry, we have found that a 24-h berberine treatment up-regulated the multidrug-resistant transporter (pgp-170) expression in two oral (KB, OC2), two gastric (SC-M1, NUGC-3) and two colon (COLO 205, CT 26) cancer cell lines. Decreased retention of rhodamine 123 was observed in berberine-treated cells as compared to vehicle control. To examine whether the berberine modulated pgp-170 expression in cancer cells is associated with changes in drug resistance, we determined the cytotoxicity, cell cycle progression and cell morphology of Paclitaxel-treated cells. Paclitaxel (1 nM-10 microM) treatment for 24 h induced cytotoxicity in OC2, SC-M1 and COLO 205 cells in a dose-dependent manner. Pretreatment of cells with 32 microM berberine for 24 h prior to Paclitaxel treatment resulted in increased viability as compared to that of Paclitaxel-treated cells. In addition, Paclitaxel-induced apoptosis and/or G2/M arrest in these three cancer cell lines. Pretreatment of cells with berberine prior to Paclitaxel blocked the Paclitaxel-induced cell cycle responses and morphological changes. These results together suggest that berberine modulated the expression and function of pgp-170 that leads to reduced response to Paclitaxel in digestive track cancer cells.  (+info)

Inhibition of Candida rugosa lipase by berberine and structurally related alkaloids, evaluated by high-performance liquid chromatography. (8/346)

It is known that certain microorganisms produce extracellular lipase to better colonize the skin and mucosal surfaces. Since different extracts from medicinal plants have anti-lipase activity (Shimura et al., Biosci. Biotechnol. Biochem., 56: 1478-1479, 1992), we examined the effects of selected natural substances on Candida rugosa lipase. In the presence of the compounds under examination, the enzyme was incubated with beta-naphthyl laurate, and beta-naphthol, produced by the enzymatic reaction, was extracted with ethyl acetate and analyzed by reversed phase HPLC, using a C-18 column. Thus, the inhibitory activity was calculated by a proper formula based on the variations of the area under the chromatographic peak of beta-naphthol. The method was validated by analyzing substances with known anti-lipase activity such as saturated fatty acids (C10-16) and tetracycline. Berberine and a number of structurally related alkaloids such as chelidonine, chelerythrine, and sanguinarine appeared active. This property of berberine and sanguinarine is of interest because they are used in pathological conditions in which microbial lipases could play a pathogenic role.  (+info)

Dyeing properties of silk fabric with berberine have been studied in terms of the thermodynamic and kinetic factors, including standard affinity, enthalpy change, entropy change, dyeing rate, diffusion coefficient and activation energy of the diffusion. The results show that the adsorption isotherm of berberine on silk fabric belongs to Langmuir type. The analysis of dyeing thermodynamics shows that the adsorption of berberine on silk fabric is an exothermic process. When the fabric is dyed at higher temperature, the lower affinity and less dye uptake are obtained; however, the higher temperature increases the initial dyeing rate and diffusion coefficient ...
Berberine is an alkaloid isolated from plants including Hydrastis canadensis L., and the Berberidaciae family, and many other plants, including the Oregon grape root. It is the major alkaloidal component of Coptis chinensis used in Chinese herbal medicine. It has also been produced synthetically. Berberine is found in tea, herbal dietary supplements, and over-the-counter health-related products. This developmental toxicity study was designed to evaluate potential maternal and developmental toxicity in time-mated mice exposed to berberine chloride dihydrate in the feed throughout the embryo/fetal period.. Female Swiss albino (CD-1) mice were dosed through ground feed (NIH-07) containing BCD (0, 3500, 5250, or 7000 ppm) on gd 6 to 17. Calculated average daily intake of BCD was 0, 569, 841, and 1155 mg/kg/day, respectively. Calculated intake of berberine chloride was 0, 450, 666, and 915 mg/kg/day. The oral route conforms to one of the expected routes of human exposure. The dose range was based on ...
Berberine - An alternative treatment for lung cancer, 978-3-8383-9960-7, In the present investigation, the efficacy of berberine in human lung carcinoma cell line (A549) and experimental lung cancer were studied. The viability of A549 cells was significantly reduced by berberine treatment, indicating that the treatment is cytotoxic. This was confirmed from the results that levels of marker enzymes and synthesis of nucleic acids were reduced on berberine treatment.Similarly the increased level of intra cellular calcium, p53 protein expression and cytochrome C paves the way for caspases activation; thereby induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest ensues that indicates the anti- proliferative potential and anticancer activity of berberine. Moreover, on berberine treatment, the lung cancer bearing animals have showed significant increase in body and organ weight. The lipid peroxidation and glycoproteins levels were decreased on treatment. Altered activities of membrane bound ATPase,
Cortidis rhizoma (Huanglian) and its major therapeutic component, berberine, have drawn extensive attention in recent years for their anti-cancer properties. Growth inhibitory effects of berberine on multiple types of human cancer cells have been reported. Berberine inhibits invasion, induces cell cycle arrest and apoptosis in human cancer cells. The anti-inflammatory property of berberine, involving inhibition of Signal Transducer and Activator of Transcription 3 (STAT3) activation, has also been documented. In this study, we have examined the effects of berberine on tumorigenicity and growth of nasopharyngeal carcinoma (NPC) cells and their relationship to STAT3 signaling using both in vivo and in vitro models. Berberine effectively inhibited the tumorigenicity and growth of an EBV-positive NPC cell line (C666-1) in athymic nude mice. Inhibition of tumorigenic growth of NPC cells in vivo was correlated with effective inhibition of STAT3 activation in NPC cells inside the tumor xenografts grown in
Berberine is known to improve glucose and lipid metabolism disorders, but it poorly absorbed into the blood stream from the gut. Therefore, the exact underlying mechanism for berberine is still unknown. In this study, we investigated the effect of berberine on glucose metabolism in diabetic rats and tested the hypothesis that berberine acts directly in the terminal ileums. Rats were divided into a control group, diabetic group (DM), low dose of berberine group (BerL) and high dose of berberine group (BerH). Ileum samples were analyzed using a Roche NimbleGen mRNA array, qPCR and immunohistochemistry. We found that 8 weeks of treatment with berberine significantly decreased fasting blood glucose levels. An oral glucose tolerance test (OGTT) showed that blood glucose was significantly reduced in the BerL and BerH groups before and at 30 min, 60 min and 120 min after oral glucose administration. Plasma postprandial glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) levels were increased in the berberine-treated groups. The
Berberine, a primary pharmacological active constitute of Coptidis Rhizoma, could inhibit neuronal apoptosis in cerebral ischemia. Here, we aimed to investigate whether and how HIF-1 is implicated in the anti-apoptosis effect of berberine on neurons under hypoxia/ischemia. Viability of PC12 cells treated with berberine prior to or following CoCl2-induced hypoxia was evaluated. Annexin V-PI staining was employed to analyse cell apoptosis ratio. HIF-1α and apoptosis-associated molecules were detected via Western blotting. TUNEL and immunohistochemistry were used to demonstrate apoptosis, HIF-1α and p53 levels in cerebral tissue of middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) rats. Berberine pretreatment promoted PC12 cells survival and inhibited apoptosis under hypoxia condition. At the same time, it decreased cell viability and enhancement of apoptosis were observed with berberine treatment under hypoxia. Decreased HIF-1α, caspase 9, caspase 3 and increased Bcl-2/Bax ratio were responsible for the ...

Berberine and the methylenedioxy ring-opening derivatives palmatine and jatrorrhizine are active ingredients in immunomodulatory plants, such as goldenseal. This study aimed to illustrate the effects of protoberberines on aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) activation and cytochrome P450 (CYP) 1 in the estrogen receptor (ER)α(+) MCF-7 breast cancer cells. Among protoberberines at non-cytotoxic concentrations (≤10 μM), berberine had the most potent and statistically significant effects on AhR activation and CYP1A1/1A2/1B1 mRNA induction. The 24-h exposure to 10 μM berberine did not change CYP1A1 mRNA stability, protein level and function. Berberine significantly increased micro RNA (miR)-21-3p by 36% and the transfection of an inhibitor of miR-21-3p restored the induction of CYP1A1 protein with a 50% increase. These findings demonstrate that the ring opening of the methylenedioxyl moiety in berberine decreased AhR activation in MCF-7 cells. While CYP1A1 mRNA was elevated, berberine-induced miR-21-3p

Berberine, an isoquinoline alkaloid isolated from several traditional Chinese herbal medicines (TCM), exhibits a strong antimicrobial activity in the treatment of diarrhea. However, it causes human as well as animal toxicity from heavy dosage. The present study was conducted to investigate the cytotoxicity of berberine and its possible trigger mechanisms resulting in cell cycle arrest, DNA damage, ROS (reactive oxygen species) level, mitochondrial membrane potential change, and cell apoptosis in L929 murine fibroblast (L929) cells. The cells were cultured |i|in vitro|/i| and treated with different concentrations of berberine for 24 h. The results showed that cell viability was significantly decreased in a subjected dose-dependent state; berberine concentrations were higher than 0.05 mg/mL. Berberine at a concentration above 0.1 mg/mL altered the morphology of L929 cells. Cells at G2/M phase were clear that the level of ROS and cell apoptosis rates increased in 0.1 mg/mL group
Goldenseal has been used for the treatment of a wide variety of ailments including gastrointestinal disturbances, urinary tract disorders, and inflammation. The five major alkaloid constituents in goldenseal are Berberine, palmatine, hydrastine, hydrastinine, and canadine. When goldenseal was evaluated by the National Toxicology Program (NTP) in the standard 2-year bioassay, goldenseal induced an increase in liver tumors in rats and mice; however, the mechanism of goldenseal-associated liver carcinogenicity remains unknown. In this study, the toxicity of the five goldenseal alkaloid constituents was characterized, and their toxic potencies were compared. As measured by the Comet assay and the expression of γ-H2A.X, Berberine, followed by palmatine, appeared to be the most potent DNA damage inducer in human hepatoma HepG2 cells. Berberine and Palmatine suppressed the activities of both topoisomerase (Topo) I and II. In Berberine-treated cells, DNA damage was shown to be directly associated with ...

Berberine is a bioactive isoquinoline alkaloid derived from many plants. Although berberine has been shown to inhibit growth and induce apoptosis of several tumor cell lines, its poor absorption and moderate activity hamper its full therapeutic potential. Here, we describe the synthesis of a series of 9-O-substituted berberine derivatives with improved antiproliferative and apoptosis-inducing activities. An analysis of novel berberine derivatives by EPR spectroscopy confirmed their similar photosensitivity and analogous behavior upon UVA irradiation as berberine, supporting their potential to generate ROS. Improved antitumor activity of novel berberine derivatives was revealed by MTT assay, by flow cytometry and by detection of apoptotic DNA fragmentation and caspase-3 activation, respectively. We showed that novel berberine derivatives are potent inhibitors of growth of HeLa and HL-60 tumor cell lines with IC50 values ranging from 0.7 to 16.7 µM for HL-60 cells and 36 to >200 µM for HeLa ...
PubMed ID: 23982892 Albring KF, Weidemüller J, Mittag S, Weiske J, Friedrich K, Geroni MC, Lombardi P, Huber O. Biofactors 2013. Aberrant activation of the canonical Wnt/β-catenin signaling pathway has been reported for numerous tumors of different origins. In most cases, mutations in components of the Wnt signaling pathway or in β-catenin itself were detected which ultimately induce a genetic program that promotes cell proliferation and attenuates apoptosis. Thus, targeting of Wnt/β-catenin signaling is of specific therapeutic interest. Herein, we investigated the plant-derived isoquinoline alkaloid berberine, which has been reported to have anticancer activity, and synthetic 13-arylalkyl derivatives thereof for their effects on Wnt/β-catenin signaling. Berberine did not show major effects on viability of HEK-293 embryonic kidney and HCT116 colon carcinoma cells and was not toxic in concentrations up to 20 µM. Berberine inhibited β-catenin transcriptional activity and attenuated ...

Mitochondria are well known to produce free radicals as a consequence of mitochondrial respiration (Sastre et al., 2000). Assays with dichlorofluorescein, a probe whose fluorescence increase in the presence of oxidants, show that berberine increases oxidative stress in K1735-M2 cells. To clarify whether increased oxidative stress results from mitochondrial interactions, experiments on isolated mitochondria were conducted. Results show that berberine, for the lowest concentration tested, increases oxidative stress on isolated liver mitochondria when using complex I substrates, which may help explain results in intact cells exposed to berberine. Increased oxidative stress can be attributed to an interaction of berberine at a site downstream of the rotenone binding site because this inhibitor inhibits berberine-induced oxidative stress. Even without using alternative inhibitors of the respiratory chain, it is likely that the site is located on complex I because berberine does not produce ...
Berberine has been used as a therapeutic to treat a variety of human diseases in Korea, China, and possibly other Asian countries that practice the use of traditional medicines. Although its most common use is in the treatment of diarrhea and as an antitumor and antimicrobial agent (36-39), there are some reports of its potential use for the treatment of human diabetes (13,40,41). In one clinical study, 60 patients with type 2 diabetes were treated with berberine for 1-3 months, and 90% of patients showed improvement in their clinical symptoms (11). Very recently, Kong et al. (42) described the cholesterol-lowering properties of berberine. In the present study, we have extended these previous investigations and provide evidence that berberine reduces body weight and lipid levels and improves insulin action in two separate animal models of insulin resistance. Most importantly, we show that berberine acutely activates AMPK activity in both adipocytes and myocytes, and within these cell types ...
The berberine stimulates the fat cells, liver cells and muscle cells to take up sugar through a process which doesnt rely on insulin. This seems to be alike as metformin. When insulin is present, then there is a dramatic increase in the activity of berberine.. Also, the berberine regulates how the mitochondrial functions and increases the insulin sensitivity. In addition, this compound decreases blood lipids, prevents fatty liver and reduces the blood sugar.. The compound also acts on α-glucosidase. This is an intestinal enzyme which breaks down carbs into simple sugars. This causes the intestines to absorb lesser amounts of carbs from your diet, and that induces low blood glucose levels after every meal.. Furthermore, berberine helps in fat reduction. It can lower the accumulation of abdominal fat and notably alter hip/waist ratio.. It seems to do this by lowering the activity of some genes which function to store and form more fats.. Another thing that berberine does is that it increases the ...

Over 2,800 studies are available on PubMed about the alkaloid berberine, a constituent of many herbs traditionally used to fight fevers and infections. More than half of these studies have been put up on PubMed in the past five years. This research not only confirms the traditional value of berberine-containing plants for infections, it also shows it has many other potential benefits for human health. Berberine is antibacterial, anti-inflammatory, and immune-enhancing. It is effective against a wide range of bacteria, protozoa, and fungi. It may also have efficacy in the treatment of insulin resistance, diabetes, arthritis, and cancer.

Best known for its natural antibiotic activity, berberine deals a serious blow to common infectious organisms- organisms like staph, strep, Chlamydia, diphtheria, salmonella, cholera, diplococcus pneumoniae, pseudomonas, gonorrhea, candida, trichomonas, and many others. Berberine is a component (for the technically inclined, a plant alkaloid) of the commonly used herbs goldenseal and Oregon grape, and of several other less well-known botanicals. A 0.2 percent solution of berberine has been found effective against trachoma-in third world countries, a major infectious cause of visual impairment and blindness, as well as many other types of conjunctivitis.. Its less well known that berberine has been found more effective than aspirin in relieving fever in experimental animals, and is able to stimulate some parts of the immune system. Its also a stimulant for bile secretion.. And its not at all well known that research published in well-known, respected, peer-reviewed medical journals ...

N2 - The purposes of this study were to determine whether berberine has any effect on phenotype changes and extracellular matrix (ECM) production in nasal polyp-derived fibroblasts (NPDFs) and to investigate the underlying molecular mechanism. NPDFs were pre-treated with berberine prior to induction by transforming growth factor (TGF)-β1. The expression of α-smooth muscle actin (SMA) and collagen type I mRNA was determined by a reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction, and the expression of α-SMA protein and collagen type I was determined by western blotting and/or immunofluorescent staining. The total soluble collagen production was analysed by the SirCol collagen assay. The expression of several signaling molecules of ...

Background: Berberine (BBR) has gained considerable attention because of its anti-tumor activity. BBR can induce apoptosis of acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) cells through the MDM2/p53 pathway. However, the effects of BBR on those ALL patients with p53 deficiency remain unclear.Results: We found that BBR reduced ALL cell viability and induced apoptosis in p53-null EU-4 and p53-mutant EU-6 cells by downregulating X-linked inhibitor of apoptosis protein (XIAP), which is increased in ALL tissues and cells. BBR-induced cell apoptosis was attenuated by inhibition of XIAP that was controlled by PIM-2. Mechanistic studies showed that BBR treatment induced an enhancement of miR-24-3p. PIM-2 is a direct target of miR-24-3p. Blockade of PIM-2 or miR-24-3p reversed BBR-induced cell apoptosis. In vivo studies, BBR remarkably alleviated leukemia conditions in a EU4 xenograft mouse model, whereas inhibition of miR-24-3p significantly reversed the effects of BBR in the leukemia condition.Conclusions: miR-24

The effects of isoquinoline alkaloid berberine (BER) on spleen tissue CD4(+)CD25(+)Foxp3(+) regulatory T (Treg) cells were evaluated in BALB/c mice. Here, BER was administered daily by intraperitoneal injection at doses of 5 mg/kg and 10 mg/kg for 14 days. Following the exposure, mice spleen cellularities, IL-10 production by splenocytes, and spleen Treg/CD4(+) cell profiles were studied in all the test groups of animals. The results showed that a high dose of BER (10 mg/kg) could decrease both the absolute and relative percentages of spleen Treg cells as well as decrease the production of IL-10 by splenocytes in the treated mice (p,0 ...

Berberine (BBR), a natural alkaloid compound, is used as a non-prescription drug in China for treating diarrhea and gastroenteritis. Many studies have revealed that BBR possesses anticancer effect. However, the molecular mechanisms underlying its anticancer action is far from being fully elucidated. This study is aimed to determine the effect of BBR on the hedgehog (Hh) activity and the growth of cancers addiction to Hh activity. The Hh activity was determined by dual luciferase assays and quantitative RT-PCR analyses. The growth inhibition of BBR on medulloblastoma which was obtained from ptch+/−;p53−/− mice was analyzed by 5-bromo-2-deoxyuridine (Brdu) assays and by allografting the medulloblastoma into nude mice. The data were statistically analyzed by one-way analysis of variance (ANOVA), and multiple comparison between the groups was performed using Dunnetts method. In this study, we found that BBR significantly inhibited the Hh pathway activity. Meanwhile, we observed that BBR failed to

The goal of the present study is to evaluate the effect of Berberine chloride (BC) on the liver of streptozotocin (STZ) induced diabetic rat. Diabetic rats were treated with BC (50 mg/kg b.w) or glibenclamide (6 mg/kg b.w), daily for 45 days. After BC treatment in diabetic rats, there was a significant (P , 0.05) decline in the levels of hepatic markers, lipid peroxidation markers such as lipid hydroperoxides (LOOH) and thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS), and pro-inflammatory mediators like tumor necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-α), phosphorylated nuclear factor kappa-B-p65 (phospho-NF-κB p65), cyclooxygenase (COX-2), nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) as well as pro-apoptotic mediators such as Bax and cytochrome c ...
DCs play an important role in T-cell differentiation and activation and suppression of DC function may very efficiently control the specific immune response. The aforementioned results showed that BBR directly inhibited the Th17 response but it was not clear whether BBR could also exert its effect on Th17 cells in humans via an interaction with DCs. Our experiments revealed that CD4+ T cells cocultured with BBR-treated DCs became hyporesponsive. Analysis of the Th17 population and IL-17 secretion showed that in the responder T cells primed by BBR-treated DCs, there was a decrease of CD4+IL-17+ cells and a downregulated IL-17 production. To further examine the mechanisms that might be involved, we performed a further analysis on the effect of BBR on DC function. The results showed that BBR treatment significantly inhibited the LPS-induced production of proinflammatory cytokines, including IL-6, IL-1β, and IL-23, which are critical for the commitment of the Th17 subset. This result is, by and ...

Radiation-induced skin injury is a common complication of radiotherapy. The RHIZOMA COPTIDIS and COPTIS CHINENSIS aqueous extract (RCE) can ameliorate radiation-induced skin injury in our clinical observation. But, the protective mechanism of RHIZOMA COPTIDIS and COPTIS CHINENSIS in radiation-induced skin injury remains unclear. In this experiment, we developed a radiation-induced skin injury rat model to study the mechanism. The animals were randomly divided into control group, treatment group, radiation group, and treatment and radiation group. 5 rats in each group were separately executed on 2 d and 49 d post-radiation. The semi-quantitative skin injury score was used to measure skin reactions by unblinded observers, and hematoxylin and eosin staining was used to evaluate the damage areas by irradiation. The MDA content, SOD activity of skin and serum were measured to detect the oxidative stress. Acute skin reactions were caused by a single dose of 45 Gy of β-ray irradiation, and the skin injury

The Native Americans introduced goldenseal to North American settlers and in the 1800s it became a popular herbal medicine used by physicians and herbalists. Because of its more recent popularity, especially combined with Echinacea, wild goldenseal was in danger of becoming an endangered species and since 1997 has been closely monitored. Goldenseal sold today is grown on farms that produce it for a demanding market.. Active Ingredient in Goldenseal. Goldenseal is one of the most popular herbal remedies yet it is one of the least studied by the scientific community. According to the University of Maryland Medical Center, the one known active ingredient in goldenseal is berberine which has shown to kill many types of bacteria in test tube studies. Berberine has also been shown to be effective in killing germs associated with various infections. Another study found berberine may able to boost white blood cells in the blood stream, thus fighting infection this way. Goldenseal also has antiseptic ...

Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is considered a critical hepatic manifestation of metabolic syndrome. Berberine (BBR) exerts anti-hyperglycemic and anti-dyslipidemic effects and can also ameliorate NAFLD. Thus, BBR might exert its therapeutic effect on NAFLD by improving glucolipid metabolism. Here, we investigated the aspects and extent to which glucolipid metabolism were affected by BBR in rats with NAFLD. Three groups of Sprague-Dawley rats were studied: a control group (n = 6) fed a normal chow diet and a NAFLD group (n = 6) and a NAFLD + BBR group (n = 6) fed a high-fat diet. Normal saline and BBR (150 mg/kg body weight/day for 16 weeks) were administered by gavage. All rats were infused with isotope tracers. The rates of glucose appearance (Raglu), gluconeogenesis (GNG) and glycerol appearance (Ragly) were assessed with 2H and 13C tracers, whereas the rates of hepatic lipogenesis and fatty acid β oxidation were measured using the 3H tracer. When the NAFLD model was successfully induced

Obesity is a consequence of an imbalance between energy intake and energy expenditure. It affects people of both genders and all age groups, ethnicity and socioeconomic groups, and in developed and developing countries. Obesity is often accompanied by the metabolic syndrome (MetS). MetS is characterized by a clustering of cardiovascular risk factors, including high blood pressure, adiposity, dyslipidemia and glucose intolerance, which together increase the risk of atherosclerotic cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes mellitus and other causes of mortality. Nowadays, there is a growing interest in the use of plant-based agents instead of synthetic drugs to manage chronic diseases such as MetS; one such example is Berberis vulgaris. B. vulgaris contains isoquinonline alkaloids such as berberine, berberrubine and berbamine. Recent studies have proved that berberine exhibits pharmacological activities and positive effects on the risk factors of obesity and MetS. We have reviewed original articles ...

Intestinal adhesion after abdominal surgery is a continuous state of fibrosis and inflammation that concomitantly facilitates the progression of a variety of complications, such as chronic abdominopelvic discomfort, pain, and infertility. Berberine has recently become a useful anti-inflammatory drug for cardiovascular, endocrine, and intestinal disorders, because of its antitumor and antilipase effects (Jeong et al., 2009; Jiang et al., 2011; Meng et al., 2012; Yao et al., 2013). Here, we identified berberine as an antiadhesion agent that effectively protects against postabdominal surgery adhesion and inflammation, with several lines of evidence including reduced adhesion scores from direct assessment of adhesions, histopathology measurement of lymphocytes and vascular proliferation, decreased circulating concentration of ICAM-1, downregulated expression levels and secretion of various proinflammatory cytokines in both serum and cecum, and suppression of TAK1, JNK, and NF-κB signaling..

Most people are infected with at least one internal parasite. Unfortunately, most are undiagnosed and even do not know that they are carrying one or more parasites in their bodies. Humans contract parasites in several ways, including eating uncooked foods like meat and fish, walking barefooted, and sharing a bed with a pet carrying them. Although the mention of parasites makes people think of the obvious ones like tapeworms, roundworms, and others, many others are microscopic like amoeba, spirochetes, and flukes.. Due to the common infection with parasites, it is critical to use parasite cleansing supplements like zoiben, which also helps with biofilms infections and other benefits. The supplement is constituted of six different essential oils and berberine, the bitter herb extract. These ingredients are all useful for eliminating parasites but are not toxic to humans.. Here are some natural remedies for intestinal parasites:. ...

... is a member of the sodium channel blocking class of antiepileptic drugs.[60] This may suppress the release of glutamate and aspartate, two of the dominant excitatory neurotransmitters in the CNS.[61] It is generally accepted to be a member of the sodium channel blocking class of antiepileptic drugs,[62] but it could have additional actions since it has a broader spectrum of action than other sodium channel antiepileptic drugs such as phenytoin and is effective in the treatment of the depressed phase of bipolar disorder, whereas other sodium channel blocking antiepileptic drugs are not, possibly on account of its sigma receptor activity. In addition, lamotrigine shares few side-effects with other, unrelated anticonvulsants known to inhibit sodium channels, which further emphasises its unique properties.[63] It is a triazine derivate that inhibits voltage-sensitive sodium channels, leading to stabilization of neuronal membranes. It also blocks L-, N-, and P-type calcium channels and ...
... (INN), also known as captodiamine, is an antihistamine sold under the trade names Covatine, Covatix, and Suvren which is used as a sedative and anxiolytic. The structure is related to diphenhydramine.[1] A 2004 study suggested captodiame may be helpful in preventing benzodiazepine withdrawal syndrome in people discontinuing benzodiazepine treatment.[1] In addition to its actions as an antihistamine, captodiamine has been found to act as a 5-HT2C receptor antagonist and σ1 receptor and D3 receptor agonist.[2] It produces antidepressant-like effects in rats.[2] However, captodiamine is unique among antidepressant-like drugs in that it increases brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) levels in the hypothalamus but not in the frontal cortex or hippocampus.[2] This unique action may be related to its ability to attenuate stress-induced anhedonia and corticotropin-releasing factor (CRF) signaling in the hypothalamus.[2] ...
In humans, the IGF2 gene is located on chromosome 11p15.5, a region which contains numerous imprinted genes. In mice this homologous region is found at distal chromosome 7. In both organisms, Igf2 is imprinted, with expression resulting favourably from the paternally inherited allele. However, in some human brain regions a loss of imprinting occurs resulting in both IGF2 and H19 being transcribed from both parental alleles.[6] The protein CTCF is involved in repressing expression of the gene, by binding to the H19 imprinting control region (ICR) along with Differentially-methylated Region-1 (DMR1) and Matrix Attachment Region −3 (MAR3). These three DNA sequences bind to CTCF in a way that limits downstream enhancer access to the Igf2 region. The mechanism in which CTCF binds to these regions is currently unknown, but could include either a direct DNA-CTCF interaction or it could possibly be mediated by other proteins. In mammals (mice, humans, pigs), only the allele for insulin-like growth ...

... is a molecule which binds to sigma receptors.[1] 4-PPBP decreases neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) activity and ischemia-evoked nitric oxide (NO) production. 4-PPBP provides neuroprotection; this involves the prevention of ischemia-induced intracellular Ca2+dysregulation.[2]4-PPBP protects neurons using a mechanism that activates the transcription factor cyclic adenosine monophosphate response element-binding protein (CREB). Neuroprotection that is associated with 4-PPBP increases Bcl-2 expression; Bcl-2 expression is regulated by CREB. [3] ...
... is an allosteric endocannabinoid, as it is a negative allosteric modulator of the CB1 receptor.[4][5] Pregnenolone is involved in a natural negative feedback loop against CB1 receptor activation in animals.[6][better source needed] It prevents CB1 receptor agonists like tetrahydrocannabinol, the main active constituent in cannabis, from fully activating the CB1 [6][better source needed] Pregnenolone has been found to bind with high, nanomolar affinity to microtubule-associated protein 2 (MAP2) in the brain.[7][8] In contrast to pregnenolone, pregnenolone sulfate did not bind to microtubules.[7][8] However, progesterone did and with similar affinity to pregnenolone, although unlike pregnenolone, it did not increase binding of MAP2 to tubulin.[7][8] Pregnenolone was found to induce tubule polymerization in neuronal cultures and to increase neurite growth in PC12 cells treated with nerve growth factor.[7][8] As such, pregnenolone may control formation and stabilization of microtubules ...
Brand names include Eskazinyl, Eskazine, Jatroneural, Modalina, Stelazine, Terfluzine, Trifluoperaz, Triftazin. In the United Kingdom and some other countries, trifluoperazine is sold and marketed under the brand 'Stelazine'. The drug is sold as tablet, liquid and 'Trifluoperazine-injectable USP' for deep intramuscular short-term use. GP studying pharmacological data has indicated cases of neck vertebrae irreversible fusing leading to NHS preparations being predominantly of the liquid form trifluoperazine as opposed to the tablet form as in Stela zine etc. In the past, trifluoperazine was used in fixed combinations with the MAO inhibitor (antidepressant) tranylcypromine (tranylcypromine/trifluoperazine) to attenuate the strong stimulating effects of this antidepressant. This combination was sold under the brand name Jatrosom N. Likewise a combination with amobarbital (potent sedative/hypnotic agent) for the amelioration of psychoneurosis and insomnia existed under the brand name Jalonac. In ...
... is available as a generic medication and usually not too expensive.[7] Wholesale it costs between US$0.003 and US$0.15 per dose.[8] A month of treatment is about US$30 in the United States.[2] Since September 2012, the marketing licence in the UK has been held by Flynn Pharma Ltd, of Dublin, Ireland, and the product, although identical, has been called Phenytoin Sodium xxmg Flynn Hard Capsules. (The xxmg in the name refers to the strength-for example "Phenytoin sodium 25 mg Flynn Hard Capsules").[49] The capsules are still made by Pfizer's Goedecke subsidiary's plant in Freiburg, Germany and they still have Epanutin printed on them.[50] After Pfizer's sale of the UK marketing licence to Flynn Pharma, the price of a 28-pack of 25 mg phenytoin sodium capsules marked Epanutin rose from 66p (about $0.88) to £15.74 (about $25.06). Capsules of other strengths also went up in price by the same factor-2384%,[51] costing the UK's National Health Service an extra £43 million (about $68.44 ...
... ,[2] sold under the brand name Talwin among others, is a painkiller used to treat moderate to severe pain. It is believed to work by activating (agonizing) κ-opioid receptors (KOR) and blocking (antagonizing) μ-opioid receptors (MOR). As such it is called an opioid as it delivers its effects on pain by interacting with the opioid receptors. It shares many of the side effects of other opioids like constipation, nausea, itching, drowsiness and respiratory depression, but unlike most other opioids it fairly frequently causes hallucinations, nightmares and delusions. It is also, unlike most other opioids, subject to a ceiling effect, which is when at a certain dose (which differs from person-to-person) no more pain relief, or side effects, is obtained by increasing the dose any further.[3] Chemically it is classed as a benzomorphan and it comes in two enantiomers, which are molecules that are exact (non-superimposable) mirror images of one another. It was patented in 1960 and approved ...
It acts by interfering with the signal transmission between vestibular apparatus of the inner ear and the vomiting centre of the hypothalamus by limiting the activity of the vestibular hair cells which send signals about movement.[10] The disparity of signal processing between inner ear motion receptors and the visual senses is abolished, so that the confusion of brain whether the individual is moving or standing is reduced. Vomiting in motion sickness could be a physiological compensatory mechanism of the brain to keep the individual from moving so that it can adjust to the signal perception, but the true evolutionary reason for this malady is currently unknown.[11] When prescribed for balance problems and vertigo, cinnarizine is typically taken two or three times daily depending on the amount of each dose and when used to treat motion sickness, the pill is taken at least two hours before travelling and then again every four hours during travel.[12] However, a recent 2012 study comparing the ...
