Biological Activity

Paeoniflorin could activate PI3K/Akt signaling pathway to protect the PC12 cell injury induced by Aβ25-35.Paeoniflorin most likely contributes to the therapy for liver disease by exerting anti-inflammatory effects on HHSECs through blocking IL-8 secretion via downregulation of ERK1/2 and Akt.PF alleviates psoriatic skin lesions by inhibiting inflammation, which provides new insights into the immunomodulatory effect of PF in psoriasis treatment.Paeoniflorin pretreatment protects mice against Con A-induced liver injury via inhibition of several inflammatory mediators and, at least in part, by suppressing CD4(+), CD8(+) and NKT cell infiltration in liver. The beneficial effect of paeoniflorin may be related to the downregulation of TLR4 expression and the inhibition of NF-κB activation.Paeoniflorin alleviates liver fibrosis by inhibiting HIF-1α expression partly through mTOR pathway and paeoniflorin may be a potential therapeutic agent for liver fibrosis.

Cell Experiment
Cell lines PC12 cells
Preparation method Cell Viability Assessment
Cell viability was measured using a quantitative colori-metric assay with 3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphe-nyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) (Sigma-Aldrich, USA) as reported previously (Mosmann 1983). Briefly, cells were seeded into collagen I-coated 96-well plates at a density of 1*104 per well. At the completion of the 24-h treatment, 10 μL MTT solution (5 mg/mL) was added. Following incubation for 4 h at 37 ℃, 100 μL dimethyl sulfoxide (DMSO) was used to dissolve crystals. The absorbance was measured using a microplate reader (Bio-Rad, USA) and cell viability was expressed as a percentage of control value.
Concentrations 0, 25, 50, 100, 200 and 400 μM
Incubation time 24 h
Animal Experiment
Animal models Adult male Sprague-Dawley rats
Formulation PBS, pH 7.5, 0.1 M at a concentration of 200 μg/μL
Dosages 15 mg/kg and 30 mg/kg for 20 consecutive days
Administration i.p.
Conversion of different model animals based on BSA (Value based on data from FDA Draft Guidelines)
Species Mouse Rat Rabbit Guinea pig Hamster Dog
Weight (kg) 0.02 0.15 1.8 0.4 0.08 10
Body Surface Area (m2) 0.007 0.025 0.15 0.05 0.02 0.5
Km factor 3 6 12 8 5 20
Animal A (mg/kg) = Animal B (mg/kg) multiplied by  Animal B Km
Animal A Km

For example, to modify the dose of Compound A used for a mouse (20 mg/kg) to a dose based on the BSA for a rat, multiply 20 mg/kg by the Km factor for a mouse and then divide by the Km factor for a rat. This calculation results in a rat equivalent dose for Compound A of 10 mg/kg.
