Dendritic cells (DCs) play a crucial role in linking innate and adaptive immunity. Thus, DCs have been regarded as a major target of immunosuppressants for the control of harmful immune responses. In this study, we examined the effect of quercetin, a natural flavonoid found in many vegetables and fruits, on the activation and function of mouse DCs. Quercetin effectively inhibited LPS-induced DC activation by reducing the production of proinflammatory cytokines/chemokines and the expression levels of MHC class II and costimulatory molecules. In addition, quercetin uniquely blocked endocytosis by DCs and the LPS-induced DC migration was diminished by quercetin treatment. Furthermore, quercetin abrogated the ability of LPS-stimulated DCs to induce Ag-specific T cell activation, both in vitro and in vivo. Remarkably, coadministration of quercetin with 2,4-dinitro-1-fluorobenzene prevented 2,4-dinitro-1-fluorobenzene-induced contact hypersensitivity, indicating the potential of quercetin for treating ...

Background and Objective: Lipolysaccharide (LPS) is a large molecule isolated from bacteria such as the enterobacteriaceae family with a negative effect on memory and learning through disturbing the balance of free radicals and creating oxidative stress conditions. In this study, we evaluated the effect of quercetin on oxidative stress and LPS-induced memory impairment in the rat. Materials and Methods: Male rats (n=40) were randomly divided into 5 groups: control, control under treatment with quercetin at a dose of 50 mg/kg, LPS, and LPS groups treated with quercetin at doses of 10 or 50 mg/kg. For induction of inflammation, LPS dissolved in normal saline (500 μg/kg) was injected intraperitoneally. After one week, the passive avoidance behavior was tested in the shuttle box and hippocampal homogenate was prepared. Acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity and lipid peroxidation (malondialdehyde, MDA) were measured using specific kits. Data were analyzed by SPSS software (version 16). Results: Step
TY - JOUR. T1 - Quercetin-induced downregulation of phospholipase D1 inhibits proliferation and invasion in U87 glioma cells. AU - Park, Mi Hee. AU - Min, Do Sik. PY - 2011/9/9. Y1 - 2011/9/9. N2 - Phospholipase D (PLD) has been recognized as a regulator of cell proliferation and tumorigenesis, but little is known about the molecules regulating PLD expression. Thus, the identification of small molecules inhibiting PLD expression would be an important advance in PLD-mediated physiology. Quercetin, a ubiquitous bioactive flavonoid, is known to inhibit proliferation and induce apoptosis in a variety of cancer cells. In the present study, we examined the effect of quercetin on the expression of PLD in U87 glioma cells. Quercetin significantly suppressed the expression of PLD1 at the transcriptional level. Moreover, quercetin abolished the protein expression of PLD1 in a time and dose-dependent manner, as well as inhibited PLD activity. Quercetin suppressed NFκB-induced PLD1 expression via ...
Novel quercetin derivatives were prepared to change its physicochemical properties and effects on activity of proteolytic enzymes. For them preparation, the selective protection procedures some of the quercetin hydroxyl groups and acylation of the others with acylchlorides were used. The ability of these compounds to inhibit the activity of serine proteases e.g. trypsin, thrombin, urokinase and elastase was studied. In micromolar range, tested derivatives were the most potent inhibitors of thrombin. There was estimated better inhibition of thrombin for prenylated, acetylated, feruloyl and caffeoyl quercetin esters. Slight inhibitory effect of all quercetin derivatives on elastase was found. Among tested derivatives only diquercetin displayed better inhibiton. Trypsin and urokinase were inhibited by quercetin at comparable level. Slight improvement in inhibitory effect of trypsin and urokinase was seen for chloronaphtoquinone quercetin that revealed enhanced inhibiton of thrombin, too. However, ...

Purpose: Enteric glial cells (EGC) exert a critical role in the structural integrity, defense and metabolic function of enteric neurons. Diabetes mellitus (DM) is a chronic disease characterized by metabolic disorders and chronic autonomic neuropathy. Quercetin supplementation, which is a potent antioxidant, has been used in order to reduce the effects of diabetes-induced oxidative stress. The purpose of this research was to investigate the effects of quercetin supplementation in the drinking water at a daily dose of 40 mg on the glial cells and neurons in the jejunum of diabetic rats.Material and Methods: Twenty 90-day-old male adult Wistar rats were split into four groups: normoglycemic control (C), normoglycemic control supplemented with quercetin (Q), diabetic (D) and diabetic supplemented with quercetin (DQ). After 120 days, the jejunums were collected and immunohistochemical technique was performed to label S-100-immunoreactive glial cells and HuC/D-immunoreactive neurons.Results: An intense
Researchers from Rutgers Univ have published the result of a study in the journal Food and Function that explains a synergistic health-promoting relationship when green tea polyphenols and the flavonoid quercetin are provided through diet or supplementation. Quercetin helps boost the levels of green tea polyphenols in cancer cells to decrease methylation of their anti-cancer compounds, effectively increasing the green teas potency as a cancer-fighting agent. Quercetin boosts green tea antioxidant capacity two to fourfold to fight cancer development In past studies, scientists have demonstrated that green tea catechins undergo extensive methylation after ingestion, lowering the effectiveness of the health-promoting compounds to shield against cancer proliferation. Quercetin is a known inhibitor of methylation in normal metabolism, and a study was conducting using mice to determine if the naturally occurring flavonoid found in many fruits and vegetables could increase the potency of green tea ...

Several studies through the University of Pittsburgh have also shown Quercetin to promote and enhance the death of prostate cancer cells. These results, And More, support the valuable roles of Quercetin, and other Flavonoids as cancer chemopreventive and treatment agents. ...
Outer scales of yellow onion bulbs turn brown during maturing. The brown outer scales contain an antifungal component, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid. An aim of the present study is to elucidate the mechanism of formation of the benzoic acid. In a browning scale, the scale was divided into three areas; fleshy, drying and dried brown areas. Levels of quercetin glucosides in dried brown areas were less than 10% of the glucosides in fleshy and drying areas, whereas levels of quercetin were high in dried brown areas. This result suggests that quercetin was formed by deglucosidation of quercetin glucosides on the border between drying and dried brown areas. Peroxidase (POX) activity of dried brown areas was about 10% of those of fleshy and drying areas. Quercetin was oxidized by autooxidation, and cell-free extracts of drying areas and POX isolated from onion scales enhanced the oxidation even in the absence of externally added hydrogen peroxide. The enhancement of quercetin oxidation was suppressed by ...
In salt-sensitive hypertension, a rise of body fluid volume via increased water absorption from high salt intake causes an elevation of body fluid osmolarity. Quercetin has been tested on Dahl rats, a salt-sensitive hypertensive strain of rat in which a high salt intake causes hypertension easily (50). The rats were given a daily dose of 10 mg/kg of quercetin which significantly suppressed the high salt intake induced increase in systolic blood pressure. The rats also showed an increased volume of urine and NaCl excretion into the urine with no effect on plasma aldosterone level (51-52).. Quercetin reduces mRNA expression of the pore-forming subunit of ENaC and thus regulates the amount of Na+ reabsorption occurring in the kidneys, this is a primary regulator of blood pressure via the determination of body fluid volume (53). Specifically, the action of ENaC and amounts expressed at the apical membrane of the renal collecting ducts directly controls blood pressure (54-55). Thus this is one way in ...
If you research quercetin side-effects, youll soon find that no clear toxicity exists. So taking large amounts wont immediately have any obvious ill effects. However, there is some theoretical and anecdotal evidence that consuming large amounts of quercetin regularly - especially with other antioxidants (especially Vitamin C) - can potentially manifest some problems in some people despite quercetin benefits.. As is the case with many antioxidants - especially bioflavonoids such as quercetin - taking too many antioxidants at once can result in a pro-oxidant effect. What this means is that the inflammation-reducing effects of supplements such as vitamin c and quercetin can actually instead cause inflammation if you take them both in very high doses.. Anecdotal evidence suggests that this manifests itself most commonly in joint discomfort after prolonged usage of quercetin. Continue reading →. ...
Quercetin is a flavonoid and more specifically a flavonol. It is the aglycone form of a number of other flavonoid glycosides, such as rutin and quercitrin found in citrus fruit. Quercetin is found to be the most active of the flavonoids in studies,Template:Fix/category[citation needed] and many medicinal plants owe much of their activity to their high quercetin content. Quercetin has demonstrated significant anti-inflammatory activity because of direct inhibition of several initial processes of inflammation. For example, it inhibits both the manufacture and release of histamine and other allergic/inflammatory mediators. In addition, it exerts potent antioxidant activity and vitamin C-sparing actionTemplate:Fix/category[citation needed]. Quercetin forms the glycosides quercitrin and rutin together with rhamnose and rutinose respectively. Quercetin also shows anti-tumour properties. A study in the British Journal of Cancer showed that when treated with a combination of quercetin and ultrasound at ...

Background: Quercetin is a flavonol found in fruits (apple, grape) and vegetables (onion, broccoli). Quercetin possesses anticarcinogenic properties that protect against cancer. However, the epidemiological evidence on the association of quercetin‐rich food intake with lung cancer risk is inconclusive, and how quercetin affects lung carcinogenesis in humans is largely unknown. Laboratory analyses have shown that quercetin may inhibit Phase I cytochrome P450s enzymes responsible for the activation of tobacco‐related procarcinogens, and induce Phase II glutathione S‐transferase (GST) enzymes responsible for the removal of activated carcinogens.. Methods: We investigated the role of dietary quercetin and the interaction between quercetin and P450 and GST polymorphisms on lung cancer risk in incident lung cancer cases and matched controls from Environment and Genetics in Lung cancer Etiology (EAGLE), a population‐based case‐control study including 2100 primary lung cancer cases and 2120 ...

Purpose: : A previous microarray study from our laboratory demonstrated that in lens epithelial cells treated with quercetin (10 µM), 65% of genes that showed significant increased expression (p≤0.01) were regulated by hypoxia inducible factor-1 (HIF-1). We have, therefore, investigated the effect of quercetin on the HIF-1 signalling pathway in human lens epithelial cells. Methods: : FHL-124 cells were grown to 90% confluency and exposed to quercetin (10 or 30 µM). Protein and mRNA levels were analyzed by Western blot and qRT-PCR respectively. Immunocytochemistry experiments were carried out for visualisation of HIF-1. VEGF was measured in cell medium using ELISA. Results: : Quercetin (30 µM) induced an increase in HIF-1 protein levels after 4 and 24 hr, with a greater than 50-fold increase compared to untreated cells at 4 hr. At 10 µM quercetin, increases were seen after 24 hr. Visualisation of HIF-1 within the cell showed that quercetin caused its translocation to the nucleus and this ...
Oxidative stress is one of the major factors in the pathogenesis of liver disease. Quercetin is a plant-based antioxidant traditionally used as a treatment for hepatic injury, but its poor solubility affects its bioavailability. We here report the regulative effects on hepatoprotection and absorption in mice of quercetin sulfation to form quercetin-5,8-disulfonate (QS), a novel synthetic compound. Oral administration of both QS and the parent quercetin at 100, 200 and 500 mg/kg·bw prior to acute CCl4 oxidative damage in mice, effectively attenuated serum alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST) and lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) activities and hepatic malondialdehyde (MDA) levels (p < 0.05), and suppressed the CCl4-induced depletion of glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and total superoxide dismutase (T-SOD). Selective 5,8-sulfation of quercetin increased the hepatoprotective effect, and its relative absorption relative to quercetin (p < 0.05) as indicated by an improved 24
Most of the research on quercetin and malignant neoplastic disease has been done in cell civilization or animate being surveies. The surveies on querccetin suggest some possible good effects ; nevertheless the surveies do non give cogent evidence that the effects can be besides achieved in human organic structures. Still it is non clear how sufficient quercetin can be absorbed in human organic structure particularly when it is taken through the oral cavity. Some clinical controlled tests are required to bespeak if quercetin has a good consequence in the human organic structure. Studies conducted in cell civilizations shows that the substance has activities which are against some assorted cells for malignant neoplastic disease. This can be as a consequence of its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory effects and besides as a consequence of any other possible mechanisms. Current research lab surveies show that the substance can decelerate down the generation of malignant neoplastic disease cells and can ...
Quercetin−amino acid conjugates with alanine or glutamic acid moiety attached at 7-O and/or 3-O position of quercetin were prepared, and their multidrug resistance (MDR)-modulatory effects were evaluated. A quercetin−glutamic acid conjugate, 7-O-Glu-Q (3a), was as potent as verapamil in reversing MDR and sensitized MDR MES-SA/Dx5 cells to various anticancer drugs with EC50 values of 0.8−0.9 μM. Analysis on Rh-123 accumulation confirmed that 3a inhibits drug efflux by Pgp, and Pgp ATPase assay showed that 3a interacts with the drug-binding site of Pgp to stimulate its ATPase activity. Physicochemical analysis of 3a revealed that solubility, stability, and cellular uptake of quercetin were significantly improved by the glutamic acid promoiety, which eventually dissociates from 3a to produce quercetin and quercetin metabolites in intracellular milieu. Taken together, potent MDRmodulating activity along with intracellular conversion into the natural flavonoid quercetin warrants ...
The Rome-based scientists recruited 14 men with an average age of 25.5 to participate in their controlled, randomized, crossover, intervention trial. The men were randomly assigned to consumer either quercetin supplements or placebo for two weeks before and after a bout of eccentric exercise to eccentric induced muscle damage (EIMD). This was followed by a three-week "washout" period before the men crossed-over to the other intervention.. Commenting on the doses used, the researchers explained that for healthy people, "it has been demonstrated that a dose of 500 mg quercetin aglycone supplied in tablets, was comparable with the quercetin present in approximately 100 g of fresh red onion as assessed by urinary excretion. Hence, we have chosen to conduct the present investigation over a period of two weeks with two daily intake of quercetin (500 mg every 12 hours) based on both real food composition and the bioavailability test already reported in healthy volunteers." ...

In the past few years, there have been a number of studies dealing with the effects of quercetin increasing the performance of mice and mixed performance in planned clinical trials using athletes. David Nieman and his research team at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina had been behind many of these studies over the years. All of the testing was directed at trying to learn how quercetin functioned in the human body as if no other compounds, natural or synthetic would alter or affect quercetins influence on human tissue or system. In preparing to design the experiments, Niemans team found lab tests from animal studies using quercetin produced data to make it appear quercetin did exert a powerful chemical influence on the mice in the test. It was natural to expect the same powerful chemical influence in human trials, but that is not exactly what they found.. In preparing the first experiment, the research team agreed that quercetin must be anti-oxidative, anti-inflammatory, ...

Prostate cancer (PC) is the most frequently occurring cancer in men. Its clinical incidence and mortality rates vary geographically, being much lower in Asia than in Western countries. Notably, latent PCs seem to be equally distributed, thus supporting the hypothesis, that environmental factors may be important in prostate cancer progression. Moreover, epidemiological evidence strongly supports the concept that the incidence of clinical prostate cancer depends on lifestyle factors, mainly related to diet. The isoflavone genistein and the flavonoid quercetin have been identified as likely preventive candidates. The aim of the intended clinical trial is to evaluate the hypothesized effectiveness of polyphenolic phytochemicals with highly purified dietary supplements in patients at high risk of clinical PC and without systemic treatment. This will provide data, which serve as an important pre-requesite for targeted dietary interventions using alternative medicine as preventive measures in men with ...

VELLOSA, José Carlos Rebuglio et al. Antioxidant and cytotoxic studies for kaempferol, quercetin and isoquercitrin. Eclet. Quím. [online]. 2011, vol.36, n.2, pp.07-20. ISSN 0100-4670. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0100-46702011000200001.. The aim of the present study was to investigate a cytotoxic oxidative cell stress related and the antioxidant profile of kaempferol, quercetin, and isoquercitrin. The flavonol compounds were able to act as scavengers of superoxide anion (but not hydrogen peroxide), hypochlorous acid, chloramine and nitric oxide. Although flavonoids are widely described as antioxidants and this activity is generally related to beneficial effects on human health, here we show important cytotoxic actions of three well known flavonoids. They were able to promote hemolysis which one was exacerbated on the presence of hypochlorous acid but not by AAPH radical. Therefore, despite they expected scavenger action over free radicals an oxidants, these compounds could be very lesive to ...

Problem statement: Recent findings demonstrated the crucial role of oxidative stress on the pathophysiology of Alzheimers Disease (AD). Antioxidant intake is beneficial to delay or inhibit the progression of this disease. Quercetin, a bioflavonoid in fruits and vegetables, has a powerful antioxidant activity both in vitro and in vivo. Claims that quercetin has many biological activities. However, quercetin is rapidly metabolized and limited ability to cross the blood-brain-barrier are obstacles to its use for treatment of AD. Liposomes have been used as an effective delivery system to the brain. Advantages associated with the nasal administration over oral route include higher bioavailability due to no first pass hepatic metabolism and rapid absorption leading to shorter time to onset of effect. Based on this information, the effects of quercetin liposomes via nasal route on improving cognitive behavior and biochemical markers of oxidative stress, Superoxide Dismutase (SOD), catalase, glutathione and
Quercetin belongs to a class of water-soluble plant coloring agents called bioflavonoids, which have anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties. Bioflavonoids have been investigated for a wide variety of medical uses. A study published in 1999 suggests that quercetin may be helpful for chronic non-bacterial prostatitis. In this double-blind trial, 30 men with fairly severe chronic non-bacterial prostatitis were given either quercetin (500 mg twice daily) or placebo for a month.1 The results showed that participants given quercetin improved to a significantly greater extent than those in the placebo group. The greatest gains were seen in reduction of pain. A special grass pollen extract has also shown promise. In a 6-month, double-blind study of 60 men with non-bacterial prostatitis, use of the grass pollen extract was more effective than placebo.9 Grass pollen is better known as a treatment for benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). All the other commonly used natural treatments for this ...
Whitening cosmetics with anti-melanogenesis activity are very popular worldwide. Many companies have tried to identify novel ingredients that show anti-melanogenesis effects for new product development. Among many plant-derived compounds, polyphenols are thought to be one of the most promising anti-melanogenesis ingredients. In order to prepare effective whitening polyphenols, 3,3,4,5,7-pentahydrosyflavone (quercetin) has been widely researched and applied to commercial products because it is present in high levels in many edible plants. Quercetin is thus a representative polyphenol and has recently gained attention in the cosmetics field. There are many controversies, however, regarding the effect of quercetin, based on in vitro studies, cell line experiments, and human trials. In this review, toxicity and efficacy data for quercetin and its derivatives in various experimental conditions (i.e., various cell lines, concentration ranges, and other parameters) were examined. Based on this analysis,
Low prices on Quercetin! Quercetin helps protect against free-radical damage*. Quercetin is a naturally occurring flavonoid found in plant tissues such as apples, onions, tea and grapes. Its antioxidant properties protect the body from harmful free-radical damage.* Quercetin supports healthy histamine levels, which promote proper immune function. Its often combined with bromelain, an enzyme from pineapple, for immune system support.
Quercetin is a plant-based antioxidant flavonoid common in red grapes, green tea and onions. One study had two 8-week phases in which 49 healthy men took 150 mg of quercetin per day or a placebo, and then did the reverse. After the quercetin phase, levels of HDL, the "good" cholesterol, increased by 4.5 percent. Total circulating fat (triglyceride) levels also declined, and systolic blood pressure decreased by an average of 5.7 points (mmHg). Researchers also measured changes in weight, waist circumference, and body mass index (BMI) scores and found that overall, waist size decreased after the men took quercetin. But not all men lost weight. Doctors found that only men with a specific variation of a fat-binding protein, apolipoprotein E 3/3, lost weight, waist size and had better BMI.

However, the role of tumor suppressor p53 on quercetin’s radiosensitization and regulation of endoplasmic reticulum (ER) stress response in this process remains obscure. Here, quercetin exposure resulted in ER stress, prolonged DNA repair, and the expression of p53 protein; phosphorylation on serine 15 and 20 increased in combination with
