- The compound 6-O-veratroyl catalpol (6-O) is a bioactive iridoid glucoside that was originally isolated from Pseudolysimachion rotundum var. subintegrum. It has been demonstrated that catapol derivative iridoid glucosides including 6-O, possess anti-inflammatory activity in carragenan-induced paw edema mouse model as well as bronchoalveolar lavage fluid of ovalbumin-induced mouse model. In the present study, we investigated whether 6-O modulates inflammatory responses in THP-1 monocytic cells stimulated with phorbol12-myristate-13-acetate (PMA). Our data showed that 6-O inhibited PMA induced interleukin (IL)-1β and tumor necrosis factor (TNF)-α expression in THP-1 monocytic cells. Mechanistic studies revealed that 6-O suppressed the activity of protein kinase C (PKC), which further resulted in downstream inactivation of extracellular signal-regulated kinase (ERK) and nuclear factor-κB (NF-κB) inflammatory pathway. The results implied that 6-O may protect against inflammatory responses that could be a potential compound in treating inflammatory diseases.
