Pancreatic BCell Protective Effect of Rutin and Ap igenin Isolated from Teucrium Polium

  title={Pancreatic BCell Protective Effect of Rutin and Ap igenin Isolated from Teucrium Polium},
  author={Mohammad Ali Esmaeili and Heibatollah Sadeghi},
Summary Teucrium polium (Lamiaceae) is used both as a food to prevent health and as a drug to treat hyperglycemia in Iran. In this study, we isolated the high free radical scavenging and anti0 glycation compounds from T. polium and protective effect of both flavonoid compounds was evaluated on rat isolated islets in streptozotocin induced oxidative stress. Based on our results, rutin (quercetin030rutinoside ) and apigenin isolated from T. polium exhibited high antioxidant activities compared to…

Investigation into the Antioxidant and Antidiabetic Potential of Moringa stenopetala: Identification of the Active Principles

The present investigation into the therapeutic potential of the leaves and seeds of the plant revealed no inhibitory effect against α-glucosidase enzyme up to the concentration of 200 μg/mL but the leaves extract displayed potent DPPH (1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl) radical scavenging effect, which resulted in the identification of the major antioxidant compound as rutin and minor active component, neochlorogenic acid.

Secondary metabolites from Teucrium polium L. collected in Southern Iran

Several phenolic components were identified such as flavonoids and phenylethanoid glycosides which together resulted to be the principal components of the extract and underlines the necessity of a more accurate screening for this class of compounds on the raw materials devoted to botanicals and ethno-medicinal uses.

Antidiabetic Activity of a Flavonoid-Rich Extract From Sophora davidii (Franch.) Skeels in KK-Ay Mice via Activation of AMP-Activated Protein Kinase

Results indicated that SD-FRE has the potential to alleviate type 2 diabetes and promoted GLUT4 expression and activated AMPK phosphorylation in insulin target tissues of KK-Ay mice, thus facilitating glucose utilization to ameliorate insulin resistance.

Functionality of apigenin as a potent antioxidant with emphasis on bioavailability, metabolism, action mechanism and in vitro and in vivo studies: A review.

It is concluded that apigenin is a potent antioxidant compound to overcome the difficulties related to oxidative stress and other chronic diseases.

Trado-Medical uses, Chemical Constituents and Biological Activities of Newbouldia laevis (Bignoniaceae): A Review

This review discusses the trado-medical uses, chemical constituents, and biological activities of N. laevis and lends credence to the ethnobotanical uses of the plant in folkloric practice.

Antioxidant compound Quercetin-3-O-α-L-rhamnoside (1→6)-β-D-glucose (Rutin) isolated from ethyl acetate leaf extracts of Memecylon edule Roxb (Melastamataceae)

Introduction: The present study was aimed to isolate antioxidant principle from leaf ethyl acetate extract of Memecylon edule for the first time. M. edule belongs to melastomataceae family; possess



Hypoglycaemic effect of Teucrium polium: studies with rat pancreatic islets.

Aqueous Extracts of Teucrium polium Possess Remarkable Antioxidant Activity In Vitro

Results demonstrate that the extract prepared from the T. polium possesses antioxidant activity in vitro, and tends to increase intracellular GSH levels resulting in a decrease in the GSSG/GSH ratio.


The data indicated that T. polium crude extract is capable of enhancing insulin secretion by almost 135% after one dose of treatment at high glucose concentration, and the plant extract seems to be capable of regenerating the islets of langerhans in the treated compared to the untreated diabetic rats.

Rutin improves the antioxidant status in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rat tissues

Oral administration of rutin for a period of 45 days significantly decreased fasting plasma glucose, increased insulin levels and improved the antioxidant status of diabetic rats by decreasing lipid peroxidative products and increasing enzymic and nonenzymic antioxidants.

Anti-inflammatory activity of Teucrium polium.

The ethanolic extract of Teucrium polium at a dose of 500 mg/kg body weight produced significant inhibition of carrageenan-induced inflammation and cotton-pellet granuloma and some of the biochemical parameters.
