Isorhynchophylline (IRN), an oxindole alkaloid, has been identified as the main active ingredient responsible for the biological activities of Uncaria rhynchophylla (Miq) Miq ex Havil. (Rubiaceae). Previous studies in our laboratory have revealed that IRN possesses potent neuroprotective effects in different models of Alzheimer’s disease. However, the antidepressant-like effects of IRN are remained unclear. The present study aims to evaluate the antidepressant-like effects of IRN. The antidepressant-like effects of IRN was determined by using animal models of depression including forced swimming and tail suspension tests. The acting mechanism was explored by determining the effect of IRN on the levels of monoamine neurotransmitters and the activities of monoamine oxidases. Intragastric administration of IRN at 10, 20 and 40 mg/kg for 7 days caused a significant reduction of immobility time in both forced swimming and tail suspension tests, while IRN did not stimulate locomotor activity in the open-field test. In addition, IRN treatment antagonized reserpine-induced ptosis and significantly enhanced the levels of monoamine neurotransmitters including norepinephrine (NE) and 5-hydroxytryptamine (5-HT), and the activity of monoamine oxidase A (MAO-A) in the hippocampus and frontal cortex of mice. These results suggest that the antidepressant-like effects of IRN are mediated, at least in part, by the inhibition of monoamine oxidases.

Uncaria species (Gouteng in Chinese) have been used as a plant medicine to treat ailments of cardiovascular and central nervous systems. As the main alkaloid constituent of Uncaria species, isorhynchophylline has drawn extensive attention toward antihypertensive and neuroprotective activities in recent years. Isorhynchophylline mainly acts on cardiovascular and central nervous systems diseases including hypertension, brachycardia, arrhythmia, and sedation, vascular dementia, and amnesia. Isorhynchophylline also has effects on anticoagulation, inhibition vascular smooth muscle cell apoptosis and proliferation, anti-multidrug resistant of lung cells, anti-endotoxemic, and antispasmodic. The active mechanisms are related to modulation on calcium ion channel, protection neural and neuroglial cells against β-amyloid(25-35)-induced neurotoxicity and via inducing autophagy. As a candidate drug of several cardiovascular and central nervous systems diseases, isorhynchophylline will attract scientists to pursue the potential related pharmacological effects and its mechanism with new technologies. But relatively few clinical application of isorhynchophylline has been conducted on its pharmacological activities. It requires more in vivo validations and further investigations of antihypertensive and neuroprotective mechanisms of isorhynchophylline.

Excessive inflammatory response and oxidative stress are considered as important pathogenic factors in the development of acute lung injury. Isorhynchophylline (IRN), a tetracyclic oxindole alkaloid isolated from Uncaria rhynchophylla, possesses anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant activities. Our study aimed to investigate the effects and potential mechanisms of IRN on lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated murine alveolar macrophage cell lines MH-S and NR8383.
CCK-8 assay was used to evaluate the cytotoxicity of IRN and LPS. Inflammatory response was assessed by detecting the mRNA expressions and release of tumor necrosis factor α (TNF-α), interleukin (IL)-1β, IL-6, and plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1) using qRT-PCR and ELISA. The expressions of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and cyclooxygenase (COX)-2 were examined by qRT-PCR and western blot. Oxidative stress was evaluated by detecting malondialdehyde (MDA) level and the activities of superoxide dismutase (SOD), glutathione peroxidase (GSH-Px) and catalase (CAT). The changes of the toll like receptor (TLR4)/nuclear factor-kappa B (NF-κB)/nod-like receptor protein 3 (NLRP3) inflammasome pathway was detected by western blot.
Treatment with LPS or IRN for 24 h showed no cytotoxicity on MH-S and NR8383 cells. IRN pretreatment inhibited LPS-induced production of inflammatory cytokines, expressions of iNOS and COX-2, and oxidative stress in murine alveolar macrophages. Additionally, IRN inhibited LPS-induced activation of TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 inflammasome pathway in MH-S cells. Mechanistically, inhibition of TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 inflammasome pathway by si-TLR4 suppressed LPS-induced inflammation and oxidative stress in murine alveolar macrophages.
IRN exerted anti-inflammatory and anti-oxidant effects on LPS-stimulated murine alveolar macrophages via inhibition of the TLR4/NF-κB/NLRP3 inflammasome pathway.
