IcarisideII (ICAII) could promote the differentiation of adipose tissue-derived stem cells (ADSCs) to Schwann cells (SCs), leading to improvement of erectile function (EF) and providing a realistic therapeutic option for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED). However, the underlying molecular mechanisms of ADSCs and ICAII in this process remain largely unclear.

ADSCs were treated with different concentrations of ICAII. Cell proliferation was determined by MTT assay. qRT-PCR and western blot were performed to detect expressions of SCs markers, signal transducer and activator of transcription-3 (STAT3), and microRNA-let-7i (let-7i). Luciferase reporter assay was conducted to verify the regulatory relationship between let-7i and STAT3. The detection of intracavernosal pressure (ICP) and the ratio of ICP/mean arterial pressure (MAP) were used to evaluate the EF in bilateral cavernous nerve injury (BCNI) rat models.

ICAII promoted cell proliferation of ADSCs in a dose-dependent manner. The mRNA and protein levels of SCs markers were increased by ICAII treatment in a dose-dependent manner in ADSCs. Moreover, let-7i was significantly decreased in ICAII-treated ADSCs and upregulation of let-7i attenuated ICAII-induced promotion of SCs markers. In addition, STAT3 was a direct target of let-7i and upregulated in ICAII-treated ADSCs. Interestingly, overexpression of STAT3 abated the let-7i-mediated inhibition effect on differentiation of ADSCs to SCs and rescued the ICAII-mediated promotion effect on it. Besides, combination treatment of ADSCs and ICAII preserved the EF of BCNI rat models, which was undermined by let-7i overexpression.

ICAII was effective for preserving EF by promoting the differentiation of ADSCs to SCs via modulating let-7i/STAT3 pathway.

The aim of the present study was to investigate the anti-osteoporotic activity of Baohuoside I, an active component of Herba Epimedii. Effects of Baohuoside I on the differentiation of BMSCs and the formation of adipocytes were evaluated using alkaline phosphatase staining and methylene blue staining method, respectively. Osteoporosis model was established in ovariectomized rats prior to the measurement of the serum SOD and MDA levels as well as the expression of inflammatory cytokines protein in the rats’ tissues after treatment with Baohuoside I using ELISA assay kits. The estrogen-like effect of Baohuoside I was also measured on HeLa cells. The positive rates of ALP staining in Baohuoside I groups were significantly higher (p < 0.01) compared with the normal group, with no obvious adipocyte formation observed in the groups that received Baohuoside I treatments. The levels of inflammatory markers (IL-1β, TNF-α, IL-6 and IL-8) in the treated groups were significantly lower (p < 0.05) than in the model group. Likewise, the treated groups exhibited a significantly higher (p < 0.05) serum levels of MDA compared with the model group, while SOD levels were markedly lower (p < 0.05) in a dose-dependent fashion. Baohuoside I showed no estrogen-like effect on HeLa cells upon treatment with the drug. Collectively, these results indicated that the anti-osteoporotic activity of Baohuoside I could be related to the induction of BMSCs differentiation into osteoblasts coupled with the inhibition of adipocyte formation, regulation of immune functions, and antioxidant activity.

Herba Epimedii, a commonly used Chinese medicine, has attracted much attention recently because of its potential hepatotoxic effects. 2″-O-Rhamnosyl icariside II, baohuoside I and baohuoside II are the main components of Herba Epimedii, and previous research indicates that these three compounds are related to the hepatotoxicity of Herba Epimedii. To test this idea, in this study, HL-7702 and HepG2 cells were chosen as the in vitro models and the influences of these three compounds on a series of cytotoxicity indices, including ALT, AST, LDH, SOD, GSH, MDA, ROS and MMP, were determined. The results showed that at certain concentrations, the three compounds had different effects on the indices. Among them, baohuoside I at high concentration (32 μg/mL) displayed more significant cytotoxicity than the other two compounds; therefore, it was inferred to be more closely correlated with the liver injury induced by Herba Epimedii combined with the previous study, and its toxic mechanisms may be involved in increasing oxidative stress and inducing apoptosis. The findings of this study may provide evidence of the toxic composition of Herba Epimedii to preliminarily discuss the toxic mechanisms and provide improved guidance for its clinical safety.
