Gastrodia elata Blume (GE) has long been used in oriental countries as a traditional herbal medicine to relieve symptoms associated with neurological ailments such as vertigo, general paralysis and epilepsy. In this study, we have investigated the effects of GE extracts and its major bioactive components on 1-methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP+)-treated MN9D dopaminergic cells, a classic in vitro model for Parkinson’s disease (PD). We found that vanillyl alcohol effectively inhibited the cytotoxicity and improved cell viability in MPP+-induced MN9D dopaminergic cells. The underlying mechanisms of vanillyl alcohol action were also studied. Vanillyl alcohol attenuated the elevation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) levels, decreased in the Bax/Bcl-2 ratio and poly (ADP-ribose) polymerase proteolysis. These results indicate that vanillyl alcohol protected dopaminergic MN9D cells against MPP+-induced apoptosis by relieving oxidative stress and modulating the apoptotic process and is therefore a potential candidate for treatment of neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s disease.

Vanillyl alcohol displayed a significant inhibition in the chick chorioallantoic membrane (CAM) angiogenesis. Vanillyl alcohol was also shown to contain anti-inflammatory activity using acetic acid-induced permeability and carrageenan-induced air pouch models in mice. Anti-nociceptive activity of vanillyl alcohol was also assessed using acetic acid-induced writhing test in mice. Taken together, vanillyl alcohol possesses anti-angiogenic, anti-inflammatory, and anti-nociceptive activities, which may be partly responsible for pharmacological efficacies of several folkloric medicines containing vanillyl alcohol.

The electrooxidation of benzylic alcohol derivative in acidic aqueous solution shows an oxidation pre-peak in the cyclic voltammogram, which means that the reaction is proceeding via an ECE mechanism where the second electron transfer occurs at a less positive potential. From the result of the rotating ring-disk electrode voltammetry, the initial oxidation response of the electrode reaction can be extracted.
