Telomere length, a marker of cellular aging, decreases with age and it has been associated with aging‑related diseases. Environmental factors, including diet and lifestyle factors, affect the rate of telomere shortening which can be reversed by telomerase. Telomerase activation by natural molecules has been suggested to be an anti‑aging modulator that can play a role in the treatment of aging‑related diseases. This study aimed to investigate the effect of natural compounds on telomerase activity in human peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs). The tested compounds included Centella asiatica extract formulation (08AGTLF), Astragalus extract formulation (Nutrient 4), TA‑65 (containing Astragalus membranaceus extract), oleanolic acid (OA), maslinic acid (MA), and 3 multi‑nutrient formulas (Nutrients 1, 2 and 3) at various concentrations. The mean absorbance values of telomerase activity measured following treatment with some of the above‑mentioned formulations were statistically significantly higher compared to those of the untreated cells. In particular, in order of importance with respect to telomerase activation from highest to lowest, 08AGTLF, OA, Nutrient 4, TA‑65, MA, Nutrient 3 and Nutrient 2, triggered statistically significant increase in telomerase activity compared to the untreated cells. 08AGTLF reached the highest levels of telomerase activity reported to date, at least to our knowledge, increasing telomerase activity by 8.8 folds compared to untreated cells, while Nutrient 4 and OA were also potent activators (4.3‑fold and 5.9‑fold increase, respectively). On the whole, this study indicates that the synergistic effect of nutrients and natural compounds can activate telomerase and produce more potent formulations. Human clinical studies using these formulations are required to evaluate their mode of action. This would reveal the health benefits of telomerase activation through natural molecules and would shed new light onto the treatment of aging‑related diseases.

Depending on the conditions of the reactions, maslinic acid can be converted into the corresponding 2-O-, 3-O-, or 2,3-di-O-acylated compounds in good yields. These compounds showed in SRB assays a significantly increased cytotoxicity as compared to the parent compound maslinic acid. For the most active compound of this series, i.e. 2-O-(2-chlorobenzoyl) maslinic acid (5), more detailed cell biological tests (i.e. AO/PI dye exclusion experiments, an annexin V assay, and microscopic investigations) on A2780 (human ovarian carcinoma cells) revealed that this compound triggers apoptosis.

Introduction: Reports indicate that oral administration of plant-derived maslinic acid (MA) exhibits hypoglycemic and renoprotective effects in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats. Challenges with triterpenes such as MA include low bioavailabilty which affects treatment efficacy in experimental animals. The goal of this study was to synthesize the MA derivative phenylhydrazine (PH-MA) in an effort to improve the efficacy of MA. Methods: Separate groups of non-diabetic and STZ-induced diabetic rats (n = 6) were anesthetized and the jugular vein cannulated for the infusion of 0.077 M NaCl at 9 mL/h. The bladder was catheterized for collection the urine samples every 30 min. After 30.5 h equilibration period, consecutive 30 min urine collections were made over the subsequent 4 h of 1 h control, 1.5 h treatment, and 1.5 h recovery periods. PH-MA (22 µg/h) and MA (90 µg/h) were added during the treatment periods for analysis of proximal tubular Na+ handling, plasma aldosterone and arginine vasopressin in male Sprague-Dawley rats. Results: Intravenous infusion of PH-MA (22 µg/h) and MA (90 µg/h) significantly (p ˂ .05) increased Na+ output, fractional excretion of Na+ (FENa) and lithium (FELi). Interestingly, like MA, PH-MA significantly (p ˂ .05) increased glomerular filtration rate (GFR) over the treatment period and decreased plasma aldosterone levels. Our findings indicate that PH-MA inhibited sodium reabsorption in the proximal and distal tubule as shown by increased FENa and low plasma aldosterone levels, respectively. Conclusions: PH-MA is, therefore, a promising multitarget antidiabetic agent that may ameliorate kidney function of diabetic patients at a dose four times lower than the parent compound (MA).
