Neuronal apoptosis and oxidative stress are involved in most of the neurodegenerative diseases, promoting neuron survival is critical for therapy. Silibinin (SLB), which is derived from the seeds of Silybinisus laborinum L., has been widely used as an antioxidant. Here we tested the neuroprotective effects of SLB and the involved molecular mechanisms. We(More)
Parkinson's disease (PD) is characterized by the progressive degeneration of dopaminergic neurons in substantia nigra (SN) with the presence of alpha-synuclein inclusions termed Lewy bodies. The neuroprotective effects of protocatechuic acid (PAc) both in vitro and in vivo have been reported. However, little is known about the effects of PAc on(More)
3-O-demethylswertipunicoside (3-ODS) has been reported to protect dopaminergic neurons against neurotoxicity induced by 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP(+)) in PC12 cells. Here, we investigate the neuroprotective effects in vivo and antioxidant activities in vitro of 3-ODS. In the 1-methyl-4-phenyl-1,2,3,6- tetrahydropyridine (MPTP)-treated mouse model of(More)
