Puerarin has multiple pharmacological effects and is widely prescribed for patients with cardiovascular diseases, including hypertension, cerebral ischemia, myocardial ischemia, diabetes mellitus, and arteriosclerosis. While puerarin is a useful therapeutic agent, its mechanisms of action have not been well defined. Understanding puerarin metabolism, in(More)
Our aim was to investigate the inhibitory effects of schisandrin A and schisandrin B on cytochrome P450 (CYP3A) activity in rat liver microsomes and the mechanism of this interaction. 1'-Hydroxy midazolam and midazolam 1-hydroxylation catalyzed by CYP3A were analyzed by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Results showed that schisandrin A and(More)
Puerarin has multiple pharmacological effects and is widely prescribed for patients with cardiovascular diseases including hypertension, cerebral ischemia, myocardial ischemia, diabetes mellitus, and arteriosclerosis. We have successfully prepared puerarin-loaded solid lipid nanoparticles (Pue-SLNs) for oral administration. Pue-SLNs are prepared using(More)
OBJECTIVE To investegate the role of calcineurin (CaN) and its downstream nuclear factor of activated T-cells (NFATc3) in abdominal aorta restenosis following balloon dilatation in rats. METHODS SD rats were randomly divided into sham-operated group, balloon group and cyclosporine A (CsA) group. The rats in the latter two groups were subjected to(More)
This study aimed to investigate the anti-oxidant and anti-hypertrophic effects of puerarin-7-O-glucuronide, a water-soluble puerarin metabolite. The anti-oxidant effects of puerarin-7-O-glucuronide were assessed by measurement of intracellular superoxide levels, total superoxide dismutase (SOD) activity, total anti-oxidant capacity, and glutathione(More)
