Chlorogenic acid prevents isoproterenol-induced hypertrophy in neonatal rat myocytes.


PMID 24583048

Abstract

Cardiac hypertrophy is an independent risk factor for cardiovascular disease and its subsequent progression to heart failure represents a major cause of morbidity and mortality in the world. CGA is an important component of Chinese herbal medicine, acting as an antioxidant, scavenging free radicals and preventing inflammation. This study found that with the pre-treatment of chlorogenic acid in Iso-induced neonatal rat myocytes, the levels of the hypertrophic markers, ANP, BNP and β-MHC decreased. The nuclear translocation of NF-κB was blocked, whereas NF-κBIA, an inhibitor of NF-κB, was upregulated accordingly. And the level of the intracellular ROS was also reduced. These data reveal that chlorogenic acid may inhibit Iso-induced cardiac hypertrophy by attenuating NF-κB signaling pathway and suppressing ROS.
