Wu Shan Shen Cha (Malus asiatica Nakai. Leaves)-Derived Flavonoids Alleviate
Alcohol-Induced Gastric Injury in Mice via an Anti-Oxidative Mechanism
Bihui Liu, Chengfeng Zhang, Jing Zhang, andXin Zhao* Abstract
Wu Shan Shen Cha is the leaf of Malus asiatica Nakai., a special type of tea that
is consumed in the same way as green tea. To study the effect of Wu Shan Shen
Cha-derived flavonoids (WSSCF) on lesions in the stomach, a 15% hydrochloric acid–95%
ethanol (volume ratio 4:6) solution was used to induce gastric injury in mice.
The degree of gastric injury was assessed using tissue specimens, and the effects
of WSSCF on the serum levels of antioxidant enzymes were investigated. The results
showed that WSSCF could alleviate the damage of the gastric mucosa and gastric
wall caused by the hydrochloric acid–ethanol solution, decrease the tissue and
serum levels of malondialdehyde (MDA) in mice with gastric injury, and increase
the serum levels of superoxide dismutase (SOD) and glutathione (GSH). The results
of quantitative polymerase chain reaction (qPCR) showed that WSSCF could increase
the mRNA expression of Mn-SOD, Cu/Zn-SOD, catalase (CAT), endothelial nitric oxide
synthase (eNOS), and neuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in tissue specimens
from mice with gastric injury and decrease the expression of cyclooxygenase-2
(COX-2) and inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS). At the same time, the results
of the high concentration of WSSCF (WSSCFH) group were closer to those of the
drug (ranitidine) treatment group. Wu Shan Shen Cha-derived flavonoids had a good
antioxidant effect, so as to play a preventive role in alcoholic gastric injury.
