Magnolol, a neolignan compound isolated from traditional Chinese medicine Magnolia officinalis, has a potentially therapeutic influence on ischemic stroke. Previous studies have demonstrated that cerebral ischemia-reperfusion (I-R) and blood–brain barrier (BBB) are involved in the pathogeneses of stroke. Therefore, in vivo and in vitro studies were designed to investigate the effects of magnolol on I-R-induced neural injury and BBB dysfunction. In cerebral I-R model of mice, cerebral infarct volumes, brain water content, and the exudation of Evans blue were significantly reduced by intravenous injection with magnolol at the doses of 1.4, 7.0, and 35.0 μg/kg. When primary cultured microglial cells were treated with 1 μg/ml lipopolysaccharide (LPS) plus increasing concentrations of magnolol, ranging from 0.01 to 10 μmol/L, magnolol could statistically inhibit LPS-induced NO release, TNF-α secretion, and expression of p65 subunit of NF-κB in the nucleus of microglial cells. In the media of brain microvascular endothelial cells (BMECs), oxygen and glucose deprivation-reperfusion (OGD-R) could remarkably lead to the elevation of TNF-α and IL-1β levels, while magnolol evidently reversed these effects. In BBB model in vitro, magnolol dose- and time-dependently declined BBB hyperpermeability induced by oxygen and glucose deprivation (OGD), OGD-R, and ephrin-A1 treatment. More importantly, magnolol could obviously inhibit phosphorylation of EphA2 (p-EphA2) not only in ephrin-A1-treated BMECs but also in cerebral I-R model of mice. In contrast to p-EphA2, magnolol significantly increased ZO-1 and occludin levels in BMECs subjected to OGD. Taken together, magnolol can protect neural damage from cerebral ischemia- and OGD-reperfusion, which may be associated with suppressing cerebral inflammation and improving BBB function.

Abstract Skeletal ischaemia-reperfusion (I-R) injury may influence patient outcome after severe vascular trauma or clamping of major vessels. The aim of this study was to observe whether locally applied vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) in fibrin could induce the expression of VEGF-receptor-2 (VEGFR-2) and improve the outcome after I-R injury. Transgenic mice expressing VEGFR-2 promoter-controlled luciferase were used for the assessment of VEGFR-2 expression. Ischaemia was induced for 2 ...

It is of great importance to protect the brain against cerebral ischemia and reperfusion (I/R) injury, which leads to excitotoxicity, redox imbalance, inflammation and apoptosis; however, there is currently no effective treatment. The present study aimed to investigate the effect of H2S preconditioning on cerebral I/R injury and its underlying mechanism. The results demonstrated that H2S preconditioning significantly prevented the development of neurological function abnormality, inflammation an...

Ischemia-reperfusion (IR) injury occurs when blood supply to an organ is disrupted—ischemia—and then restored—reperfusion—leading to a burst of reactive oxygen species (ROS) from mitochondria. It has been tacitly assumed that ROS production during IR is a non-specific consequence of oxygen interacting with dysfunctional mitochondria upon reperfusion. Recently, this view has changed, suggesting that ROS production during IR occurs by a defined mechanism. Here we survey the metabolic factors under...

Mitochondrial complex I (NADH:ubiquinone oxidoreductase) is a key enzyme in cellular energy metabolism and provides approximately 40% of the proton-motive force that is utilized during mitochondrial ATP production. The dysregulation of complex I function – either genetically, pharmacologically, or metabolically induced – has severe pathophysiological consequences that often involve an imbalance in the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Slow transition of the active (A) enzyme to the de...

Post stroke depression (PSD) is one of the most common complications of ischemic stroke. At present, the underlying mechanisms are unclear, largely because there are no reliable, valid and reproducible animal models of PSD. Here we report a novel animal model of PSD that displays consistent and reliable clinical features of hemiplegic stroke. The animal model encompasses a combination of the middle cerebral artery occlusion (MCAO) and spatial restraint stress. We found that a 60-minute MCAO foll...

Inflammation that develops in the brain and peripheral organs after stroke contributes profoundly to poor outcome of patients. However, mechanisms through which inflammation impacts on brain injury and overall outcome are improperly understood, in part because the earliest inflammatory events after brain injury are not revealed by current imaging tools. Here, we show that single-photon emission computed tomography (NanoSPECT/CT Plus) allows visualization of blood brain barrier (BBB) injury after...

Acute systemic inflammatory reaction superimposed on chronic low-grade inflammation accompanies acute ischemic stroke. Elevated blood levels of systemic inflammatory markers such as IL-6 or C-reactive protein are associated with an unfavorable functional outcome and increased mortality after stroke. Animal studies have demonstrated a causal relationship between systemic inflammation and ischemic brain damage. The mechanisms linking systemic inflammation with poor outcome include increased neutro...

Abstract Cerebral ischemic injury exhibits both high morbidity and mortality worldwide. Traditional research of the pathogenesis of cerebral ischemic injury has focused on separate analyses of the involved cell types. In recent years, the neurovascular unit (NVU) mechanism of cerebral ischemic injury has been proposed in modern medicine. Hence, more effective strategies for the treatment of cerebral ischemic injury may be provided through comprehensive analysis of brain cells and the extracellul...

Abstract Blood-brain barrier (BBB) disruption exacerbates diffuse axonal injury (DAI), but the underlying mechanisms are not fully understood. Inactivation or deletion of erythropoietin-producing hepatoma (EPH) receptor A2 (EphA2) attenuated BBB damage and promoted tight junction formation. In this study, we aimed to investigate the role of EphA2 in the protection of BBB integrity and the relevant mechanisms involved in a rat model of DAI. Blocking activation of the EphA receptor by EphA2-Fc ame...

Magnolol, which is a CYP3A substrate, is a well-known agent that can facilitate neuroprotection and reduce ischemic brain damage. However, a well-controlled release formulation is needed for the effective delivery of magnolol due to its poor water solubility. In this study, we have developed a formulation for a CYP3A-excipient microemulsion, which can be administrated intraperitoneally to increase the solubility and bioavailability of magnolol and increase its neuroprotective effect against isch...

Abstract This study aims to investigate whether magnolol (MG), a natural neolignane compound, can prevent AD induced by beta-amyloid (Aβ) and the possible mechanisms involved. MG dose-dependently reduces Aβ deposition, toxicity and memory impairment caused by Aβ in transgenic C. elegans. More importantly, these effects are reversed by GW9662, a selective peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor-γ (PPAR-γ) antagonist. MG is more effective in enhancing PPAR-γ luciferase levels than honokiol (HK)...
