Effects of some sedative oriental medicines on neurotransmission and antioxidative system in vitro


, : Effects of some sedative oriental medicines on neurotransmission and antioxidative system in vitro. Yakhak Hoeji 44(1): 22-28, Feb

The extracts of Euphoria longan, Zizyphus jujuba, Thuja orientalis, Polygala tenuifolia, Acorus gramineus, Cyperus rotundus, Poria cocos, Uncaria rhynchophylla, and Albizzia julibrissin, which have been used as sedative drugs in Korean folk medicine, were evaluated for their effects on neurotransmission and antioxidative system in vitro. Among the tested drugs, Acorus gramineus showed most inhibitory activities on monoamine oxidase, xanthine oxidase, aldehyde oxidase, and lipid peroxidation and Uncaria rhynchophylla also inhibited most effectively GABA transaminase and DPPH radical.

The purpose of this study was to induce the differentiation of neural stem/precursor cells (NSPC) more towards neurons than glial cells by the combination of media, biomaterials and extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins. Considering the role of seru...
