Effects of Myrrh extracts on the anti-wrinkle activity and anti tyrosinase activity in Hs68 human fibroblasts

  title={Effects of Myrrh extracts on the anti-wrinkle activity and anti tyrosinase activity in Hs68 human fibroblasts},
  author={K. Leem},
This study was designed to investigate the collagen metabolism and tyrosinase activity of Myrrh Extracts (ME). The currently known effects of ME are to move blood, calm pain, solve oedema, and promote tissue regeneration. The effect of ME on type I procollagen production and collagenase (matrix metalloproteinase-1, henceforth referred as MMP-1) activity in human normal fibroblasts Hs68 after ultraviolet B (UVB, 312 nm) irradiation was measured by the ELISA method. The tyrosinase activity after… Expand


Anti-Wrinkle Activity of Ziyuglycoside I Isolated from a Sanguisorba officinalis Root Extract and Its Application as a Cosmeceutical Ingredient
Ziyuglycoside I isolated from S. officinalis root extract could be used as an active ingredient for cosmetics, and a clinical study showed a significantly different effect of the test formulation from that of the placebo. Expand
Molecular basis of sun-induced premature skin ageing and retinoid antagonism
It is proposed that elevated metalloprotein-ases, resulting from activation of AP-1 and NF-KB by low-dose solar irradiation, degrade collagen and elastin in skin, which would result in solar scars, which through accumulation from a lifetime of repeated low- dose sunlight exposure could cause premature skin ageing (photoageing).

Involvement of reactive oxygen species in the oxidation of tyrosine and dopa to melanin and in skin tanning.
Reactive O2 produced by photosensitized RF, 3-CP, and 8-MOP was found to oxidize tyrosine and dopa to dopachrome and subsequently their conversion to melanin. Expand
Cellular and molecular mechanisms of cutaneous aging.
Cellular manifestations of intrinsic aging include decreased life span of cells, decreased responsiveness of cells to growth signals, which may reflect loss of cellular receptors to growth factors, and increased responsiveness to growth inhibitors, which are more pronounced in cells derived from photodamaged skin.
