  • Shiquandabutang is very famous prescription for tonifying vital energy. We examined the anti-metatstastic effect of Shiquandabutang with in vitro invasion assay model. We performed the following experiments and the results are listed below:Cell viability assay was carried to determine the dose of Shiquandabutang. At lower dose under 200 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ (89.6%) viability was very high. But, viability downed as dose grows. At the dose of 600 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ (54.2%) viability was almost half of that of control. And at high dose of 1000 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ (15.8%) viability was very pure. In BrdU incorporation assay, Shiquandabutang treated groups showed the decreased DNA synthesis rate compared with control group.(200 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ (64.4%), 400 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ (7.3%)) The results of gelatinase assay showed that Shiquandabutang decreases the gelatinolytic activity of MMP-9. We examined tube formation assay and the result was that Shiquandabutang ihhibits the tube formation at the dose of 200 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$ and 400 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$. We examined rat aortic ring assay and the result was that Shiquandabutang ihhibits the angiogenesis of the rat aortic ring at the dose of 400 ${\mu}g/m{\ell}$. From our research, part of the mechanism underlying anti-metastastic effect of Shiquandabutang was proven in vitro. Moreover, we knew that Shiquandabutang is more effectively inhibits the angiogenesis at high dose.

  • The imports of Centella asiatica L. Urban are increasing year-by-year due to the fact that its extract is a raw material used for skin wounds and in cosmetics. However, studies on the cultivation and identification of native C. asiatica species in Korea have been extremely rare. Therefore, this study was conducted in order to investigate the physiological and functional activity of Korean native C. asiatica plant cultivated in Hapcheon, Gyeongsangnam-do, Korea. As a result, the highest antibacterial and anti-inflammatory activities were examined with methanol extract while skin-whitening and wrinkle improvement were examined with water extract. Seven bacterium and one fungus were treated with 50% methanol extracts of C. asiatica and most of the bacterium showed similar or low levels of antibacterial activity compared to the control group of Omiza (Schisandra chinensis) extract, except for Streptococcus pyogenes, which showed higher antimicrobial activity than that of Omiza extract. However, neither C. asiatica and Omiza extracts showed antimicrobial activity against the fungus, C. albicans. The results of anti-inflammatory effect analyses with Raw 264.7 cells confirmed that the treatment of methanol extract reduced the level of NO by 50% or more compared to the control group. In addition, the water extract showed the highest reduction of melanin content of up to 20% more than the control group when examined with B16F10 cell line, indicating a significant skin-whitening effect. Furthermore, we were able to show the significant skin wrinkle improvement caused by C. asiatica extract with NHDF cell as an indicator, but strong cytotoxicity was also observed, suggesting that further studies are necessary.

Ameliorative effect of onion (Allium Cepa L.) flesh and peel on amyloid-β-induced cognitive dysfunction via mitochondrial activation (미토콘드리아 활성화를 통한 양파(Allium Cepa L.) 과육 및 과피의 Amyloid-β 유도성 인지손상에 대한 개선효과)

  • In this study, in order to confirm the ameliorative effects of onion (Allium cepa L.) flesh and peel on amyloidbeta (Aβ)-induced cognitive dysfunction, we evaluated their in vitro neuroprotection and in vivo cognitive functions. As the result of in vitro neuroprotection, the protective effect of the ethyl acetate fraction of onion flesh (EOF) on Aβ-induced cytotoxicity was similar to that of the ethyl acetate fraction of onion peel (EOP). In the behavioral tests, the EOF and EOP effectively improved the Aβ-induced learning and memory impairments. For this reason, it could be concluded that the EOF and EOP improved the antioxidant activities (superoxide dismutase, oxidized glutathione/total glutathione, and malondialdehyde) in brain tissue. In addition, the EOF and EOP effectively activated mitochondrial functions by protecting the mitochondrial membrane potential, ATP, mitochondria-mediated protein (BAX and cytochrome c), and caspase 3/7 activities. The EOF and EOP also improved the cholinergic system (acetylcholinesterase and acetylcholine). Therefore, we suggest that onion could be used for management of Aβ-induced cognitive dysfunction.
