The regulatory mechanism of β-eudesmol is through the suppression of caspase-1 activation in mast cell-mediated inflammatory response.

Abstract

β-Eudesmol is sesquiterpenoid alcohol which contains the rhizome of Atractylodes lancea. Although it has multiple pharmacological effects, the anti-inflammatory effect of β-eudesmol and its molecular mechanisms are poorly elucidated. In this study, we investigated the regulatory mechanism of β-eudesmol on mast cell-mediated inflammatory response. The results indicated that β-eudesmol inhibited the production and expression of interleukin (IL)-6 on phorbol 12-myristate 13-acetate and calcium ionophore A23187-stimulated human mast cell (HMC). In activated HMC-1 cells, β-eudesmol suppressed activation of p38 mitogen-activated protein kinase (MAPKs) and nuclear factor-κB. In addition, β-eudesmol suppressed the activation of caspase-1 and expression of receptor-interacting protein-2. These results provide new insights into the pharmacological actions of β-eudesmol as a potential molecule for use in therapy in mast cell-mediated inflammatory diseases.
