Asperosaponin VI, A saponin component from Dipsacus asper wall, induces osteoblast differentiation through BMP‐2/p38 and ERK1/2 pathway. Asperosaponin Ⅵ inhibits apoptosis in hypoxia-induced cardiomyocyte by increasing the Bcl-2/Bax ratio and decreasing active caspase-3 expression, as well as enhancing of p-Akt and p-CREB.

Wound therapy remains a clinical challenge due to the complexity of healing pathology and high demand of achieving functional and aesthetically satisfactory scars. Newly formed blood vessels are essential for tissue repair since they can support cells at the wound site with nutrition and oxygen. In this study, we investigated the effects of Asperosaponin VI (ASA VI) isolated from a traditional Chinese medicine, the root of Dipsacus asper Wall, in promoting angiogenesis, as well as its function in wound therapeutics. Treatment of human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) with ASA VI (20-80 μg/mL) dose-dependently promoted the proliferation, migration and enhanced their angiogenic ability in vitro, which were associated with the up-regulated HIF-1α/VEGF signaling. Full-thickness cutaneous wound model rats were injected with ASA VI (20 mg·kg-1·d-1, iv) for 21 d. Administration of ASA VI significantly promoted the cutaneous wound healing, and more blood vessels were observed in the regenerated tissue. Due to rapid vascularization, the cellular proliferation status, granulation tissue formation, collagen matrix deposition and remodeling processes were all accelerated, resulting in efficient wound healing. In summary, ASA VI promotes angiogenesis of HUVECs in vitro via up-regulating the HIF-1α/VEGF pathway, and efficiently enhances the vascularization in regenerated tissue and facilitates wound healing in vivo. The results reveal that ASA VI is a potential therapeutic for vessel injury-related wounds.

Recurrent spontaneous abortion (RSA) is a common clinical condition, but its reasons remain unknown in 37-79% of the affected women. The steroid hormone progesterone (P4) is an integral mediator of early pregnancy events, exerting its effects via the progesterone receptor (PR). Dipsaci Radix (DR) has long been used for treating gynecological diseases in Chinese medicine, while its molecular mechanisms and active ingredients are still unclear. We report here the progesterone-like effects of the alcohol extraction and Asperosaponin VI from DR in primary decidual cells and HeLa cell line. We first determined the safe concentration of Asperosaponin VI in the cells with MTT assay and then found by using dual luciferase reporter and Western blotting that Asperosaponin VI significantly increased PR expression. Moreover, we explored the mechanisms of action of the DR extracts and Asperosaponin VI, and the results showed that they could activate Notch signaling, suggesting that they may function by promoting decidualization.

Asperosaponin VI (ASA VI), a natural compound isolated from the well-known traditional Chinese herb Radix Dipsaci, has an important role in promoting osteoblast formation. However, its effects on osteoblasts in the context of osteoporosis is unknown. This study aimed to investigate the effects and mechanism of ASA VI action on the proliferation and osteogenic differentiation of bone marrow stromal cells isolated from the ovariectomized rats (OVX rBMSCs). The toxicity of ASA VI and its effects on the proliferation of OVX rBMSCs were measured using a CCK-8 assay. Various osteogenic differentiation markers were also analyzed, such as ALP activity, calcified nodule formation, and the expression of osteogenic genes, i.e., ALP, OCN, COL 1 and RUNX2. The results indicated that ASA VI promoted the proliferation of OVX rBMSCs and enhanced ALP activity and calcified nodule formation. In addition, while ASA VI enhanced the expression of ALP, OCN, Col 1 and RUNX2, treatment with LY294002 reduced all of these osteogenic effects and reduced the p-AKT levels induced by ASA VI. These results suggest that ASA VI promotes the osteogenic differentiation of OVX rBMSCs by acting on the phosphatidylinositol-3 kinase/AKT signaling pathway.
