Betanin ameliorates isoproterenol-induced acute myocardial infarction through iNOS , inflammation , oxidative stress-myeloperoxidase / low-density lipoprotein in rat

  title={Betanin ameliorates isoproterenol-induced acute myocardial infarction through iNOS , inflammation , oxidative stress-myeloperoxidase / low-density lipoprotein in rat},
  author={Bo Yang and Feng Cao and Hua Zhao and Jian Zhang and Bo Jiang and Qing Wu},
The present study aimed to investigate betanin ameliorates isoproterenol-induced AMI through iNOS, inflammation, oxidative stress-myeloperoxidase (MPO)/low-density lipoprotein (LDL) in rat. Cardiovascular diseases CVD is considered as the first killer of human beings. The major pathogenesis of malignant cardiovascular events is chronic heart failure caused by acute myocardial infarction (AMI). Adult male Sprague-Dawley (SD) rat was induced using 100 mg/kg of isoproterenol and used for proving…

The protective effect of betanin and copper on heart and lung in end‑organ ischemia reperfusion injury.

Betanin and copper may have protective effects on I/R injury in the heart and lung in rats (Fig. 6), and MDA, MPO, IL-6 levels and apoptotic cells were significantly increased in the I-R group, while MDA and MPO levels were decreased in both treatment groups.

Vasorelaxant and Antioxidant Effects of Aframomum pruinosum Gagnep. (Zingiberaceae) Seed Extracts May Mediate Their Cardioprotective Activity against Isoproterenol-Induced Myocardial Infarction

Aframomum pruinosum seeds are traditionally used in Cameroon to treat cardiac palpitations. The present work evaluates the cardioprotective effects of the aqueous (AE) and ethanolic (EE) extracts

Betanin as a multipath oxidative stress and inflammation modulator: a beetroot pigment with protective effects on cardiovascular disease pathogenesis

This review discusses the anti-radical and gene regulatory cardioprotective activities of betanin in the pathophysiology of endothelial damage and atherogenesis, the main conditions for cardiovascular disease.

Protection by Ethanolic Extract from Ulva lactuca L. against Acute Myocardial Infarction: Antioxidant and Antiapoptotic Activities.

EEUL possibly protects against AMI because of its antioxidant and antiapoptotic properties, and the EEUL-treatment groups showed significantly decreased expression of caspase-3 and better myocardial tissue morphology.

The possible hypo-lipidemic effect of aqueous extract of gamma-irradiated chard leaves in rats fed high fat diet

Received: 4th Nov. 2020 Accepted: 17th Nov. 2020 Studying the influence of gamma (γ) -rays processing on the anti-oxidant activity of chard (Beta vulgaris) leaves and implementing of the conceivable

Effect of Betanin, a Beetroot Component, on Vascular Tone in Isolated Porcine Arteries.

It is unlikely that betanin is a component directly responsible for the beetroot-induced acute blood pressure-lowering effect in a nitrate-independent manner, and these findings suggest thatbetanin does not have a vasorelaxant activity.

The effects of betalain-rich cacti (dragon fruit and cactus pear) on endothelial and vascular function: a systematic review of animal and human studies.

Findings appear to indicate improvement in vascular health, although there is a severe lack of robust, randomised human intervention studies to identify underlying mechanisms, optimal dose and long-term effects of cacti consumption.

Betalains, the nature-inspired pigments, in health and diseases

It seems that treatment with betalains and betalain-rich diets is not only nontoxic but could also prove to be a promising alternative to supplement therapies in oxidative stress-, inflammation-, and dyslipidemia-related diseases such as stenosis of the arteries, atherosclerosis, hypertension, and cancer, among others.

Therapeutic Application of Betalains: A Review

Findings show that betalain colorants may be a promising alternative to the synthetic dyes currently used as food additives.



Betanin attenuates oxidative stress and inflammatory reaction in kidney of paraquat-treated rat.

Postconditioning attenuates myocardial injury by reducing nitro-oxidative stress in vivo in rats and in humans.

Reduction in ONOO--induced nitro-oxidative stress subsequent to the inhibition of iNOS represents a major mechanism whereby postcon confers cardioprotection in vivo.

Betanin inhibits the myeloperoxidase/nitrite-induced oxidation of human low-density lipoproteins

This study shows that betanin, a phytochemical of the betalain class, inhibits the production of lipid hydroperoxides in human LDL submitted to a MPO/nitrite-induced oxidation.

Urinary 1-Hydroxypyrene is Associated with Oxidative Stress and Inflammatory Biomarkers in Acute Myocardial Infarction

The findings indicate that the exposure to pyrenes was associated to lipid damage and alterations of endogenous and exogenous antioxidants, demonstrating that PAHs contribute to oxidative stress and are associated to acute myocardial infarction.

Cardioprotective Effects of Essential Oil of Lavandula angustifolia on Isoproterenol-induced Acute Myocardial Infarction in Rat

The results demonstrated that L. angustifolia protects myocardium against isoproterenol-induced MI that it could be related to its antioxidant properties.

Natural Antioxidant Betanin Protects Rats from Paraquat-Induced Acute Lung Injury Interstitial Pneumonia

It is indicated that betanin attenuates paraquat-induced acute lung injury possibly via antioxidant and anti-inflammatory mechanisms and the potential for using betan in as an auxilliary therapy for ALI should be explored further.

Emerging role of myeloperoxidase and oxidant stress markers in cardiovascular risk assessment

The inflammatory protein myeloperoxidase is present, active and mechanistically poised to participate in the initiation and progression of cardiovascular disease, and this leukocyte protein may have clinical utility in risk stratification for cardiovascular disease status and outcomes.

Paraoxonase gene Q192R & L55M polymorphisms in Indians with acute myocardial infarction & association with oxidized low density lipoprotein.

No correlation of PON 192 or 55 polymorphism was found with oxidized LDL suggesting that presence of other antioxidant factors may be of equal importance in preventing LDL oxidation, and the present study looks at PON192 and55 polymorphism among hospitalized Asian Indian patients with myocardial infarction and their association with circulating oxidized cholesterol and antioxidant status.

Early effect of pravastatin on serum soluble CD40L, matrix metalloproteinase-9, and C-reactive protein in patients with acute myocardial infarction.

The effect of a low dose of statin on inflammatory markers in patients with acute myocardial infarction in the first 3 days of treatment before changes in serum lipids could be detected is studied.
