목적: 본 연구는 황금추출물이 과산화지질을 장기간 급여한 흰쥐의 지질대사, 산화반응 및 전염증성 cytokine의 생산에 미치는 영향을 검토하기 위해 수행되었다. 방법: 10주 동안 흰쥐에게 과산화지질을 과량으로 급여하여 생체 내에 과잉의 지질을 축적시킨 후, 황금추출물을 6주간 급여하였다. 그 후, 각 처리군별로 지질대사, 산화반응 및 전염성 cytokine의 생산에 미치는 영향을 조사했다. 결과: 혈액 내 유리지방산, 총지질, 총콜레스테롤, low density lipoprotein-cholesterol과 간장 내 총지질, 총콜레스테롤이 황금추출물 처리군에서 하락했다. 혈액 및 간장의 thiobarbituric acid 농도가 황금추출물 처리군에서 하락했다. 간장 내 항산화효소들(glutathione peroxidase, liver catalase, liver superoxide dismutase)의 활성치가 황금처리군에서 상승하였다. 전염증성 cytokine (interleukin [IL]-1β, tumor necrosis factor-α, IL-6)의 농도는 황금추출물 처리군에서 하락했다. 반면에 IL-10의 농도는 황금추출물처리군에서 증가했다. 결론: 이상의 결과들을 종합해 보면, 황금 추출물은 과산화지질을 급여한 비만쥐의 지질대사, 항산화반응 및 항염증반응에 긍정적인 효과를 나타내었음을 인식시켜 준다.
Objectives: This study investigated the effects of Scutellariae Radix extract (SRE) on lipids metabolism, oxidation and the production of pro-inflammatory cytokines in rats fed highly oxidized fat. Methods: To induce obesity, male Sprague-Dawley rats were fed a highly oxidized fat diet for 10 weeks. SRE at 100 mg/kg were administered orally to obesity-induced rats for 6 weeks, and their lipid metabolism, oxidation and production of pro-inflammatory cytokines were examined. Results: The concentrations of free fatty acid, triglyceride, total cholesterol, and low density lipoprotein-cholesterol in plasma decreased in SRE-treated groups, although the difference was not significant between control and SRE-treated groups, while that of high density lipoprotein-cholesterol significantly increased in SRE group. The concentrations of total cholesterol and triglyceride in the liver were tended to decrease in SRE-treated group. The concentrations of thiobarbituric acid in plasma and liver were lower in SRE group than in control group. The levels of glutamic oxaloacetic transaminase and glutamic pyruvic transaminase in plasma were decreased in SRE group. Activities of glutathione peroxidase, superoxide dismutase, and catalase in liver were tended to increase in the SRE group. The plasma concentrations of interleukin (IL)-1β, tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α and IL-6 were lower in SRE group than in control group, while that of IL-10 was higher. The liver concentrations of IL-1β, TNF-α, and IL-6 were tended to decrease while that of IL-10 tended to increase in SRE group. Conclusions: Finally SRE could be used in the production of nutraceuticals for lowering lipids and exerting anti-oxidation and anti-inflammatory effects in obesity rats fed highly oxidized rat.
