Our recent study has shown that asymmetric dimethylarginine (ADMA) plays an important role in facilitating gastric mucosal injury by multiple factors. To explore whether the protection of rutaecarpine against gastric mucosal injury is related to reduction of ADMA content, a model of ethanol-induced gastric mucosal injury in rats was selected for this study. The ulcer index, the content of ADMA and NO, and the activity of dimethylarginine dimethylaminohydrolase (DDAH) in gastric tissues were… CONTINUE READING
