Betulin inhibits pro-inflammatory cytokines expression through activation STAT3 signaling pathway in human cardiac cells.


OBJECTIVE Signal transducer and activator of transcription 3 (STAT3) is an important regulator of cardiac survival pathways. Decreased expression or activity of STAT3 in patients with end-stage heart failure demonstrated a clinical relevance of STAT3 in cardiac diseases. Betulin, a pentacyclic triterpene, has drawn extensive attention towards its beneficial… (More)
