Abstract
Objective: Gelidium amansii is one sort of edible red alga distributed along the coast of Northeast Asian countries. G. amansii has been consumed as an important food source as well as a traditional medicine which was known for its regulatory effects against blood pressure and blood glucose. In this study, antioxidative activity of G. amansii ethanol extract (GAEE) was investigated through analysis of reactive oxygen species (ROS) formation and the induction of antioxidative enzymes in human gingival fibroblast-1 (HGF-1) cells.
Methods: ROS scavenging assay and cell viability were used to analyze the antioxidative activity of GAEE in HGF-1 cells. In order to estimate the expression of antioxidative enzymes, Western blot analysis was applied.
Results: GAEE significantly scavenged lipopolysaccharide isolated from Porphyromonas gingivalis stimulated intracellular ROS production in a dose-dependent manner without any cytotoxicity. To estimate the antioxidative capacity of GAEE as a potent ROS scavenger, tert-butyl hydroperoxide was applied to induce oxidative initiated cell damage in HGF-1 cells and cell viability was also significantly attenuated by GAEE treatment. Therefore, heme oxygenase-1 (HO-1) and NAD(P)H:quinone oxidoreductase 1 (NQO1), have known for their potent antioxidative activity, were analyzed whether they were induced by GAEE treatment or not. Both antioxidative enzymes were also significantly induced by GAEE treatment. In addition, GAEE treatment stimulated the activation of the transcription factor for antioxidative enzymes, nuclear factor erythroid 2-related factor 2 (Nrf2).
Conclusion: Consequently, GAEE strengthened HO-1 and NQO1 mediated antioxidative potential through the regulation of Nrf2 pathway in HGF-1 cells.
