Summary of "Purification and characterization of Inonotus hispidus exopolysaccharide and its protective effect on acute alcoholic liver injury in mice."

This study characterized the Inonotus hispidus extracellular exopolysaccharide (IHEPS) from fermentation broth and investigated its liver protective effect on acute alcoholic liver injury in mice. The characterization of IHEPS was analyzed by HPLC, UV-vis and FT-IR. To determine the liver protective effect of IHEPS, mice were administered with IHEPS once daily for 3 weeks, before ethanol induced acute alcoholic liver injury. Biochemical parameters of liver function, histopathological sections, mRNA and protein expression of related antioxidant enzymes were compared between with or without IHEPS administrated mice. As a result, IHEPS could extend the duration of righting reflex, shorten the durations of the recovery, and decrease the liver index in acute alcoholic liver mice. At the same time, alanine aminotransferase (ALT), aspartate aminotransferase (AST), and malondialdehyde (MDA) levels were decreased in IHEPS mice. Moreover, increased alcohol dehydrogenase (ADH), catalase (CAT) and superoxide dismutase (SOD) levels were also found in IHEPS mice. Furthermore, IHEPS activated Nrf2 signaling pathway and increased the expression of downstream related antioxidant enzymes, such as NQO1, CAT and Cu-Zn SOD.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Specialized clothing or equipment worn for protection against health hazards. Personal Protective Equipment may include MASKS; RESPIRATORY PROTECTIVE DEVICES; HEAD PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EYE PROTECTIVE DEVICES; EAR PROTECTIVE DEVICES; PROTECTIVE CLOTHING; and protective footwear.

A dual inhibitor of both cyclooxygenase and lipoxygenase pathways. It exerts an anti-inflammatory effect by inhibiting the formation of prostaglandins and leukotrienes. The drug also enhances pulmonary hypoxic vasoconstriction and has a protective effect after myocardial ischemia.

An effect usually, but not necessarily, beneficial that is attributable to an expectation that the regimen will have an effect, i.e., the effect is due to the power of suggestion.

The most common and most biologically active of the mammalian prostaglandins. It exhibits most biological activities characteristic of prostaglandins and has been used extensively as an oxytocic agent. The compound also displays a protective effect on the intestinal mucosa.

A synthetic prostaglandin E analog that protects the gastric mucosa, prevents ulceration, and promotes the healing of peptic ulcers. The protective effect is independent of acid inhibition. It is also a potent inhibitor of pancreatic function and growth of experimental tumors.
