Abstract
Methanol and aqueous extracts of Styrax japonica used traditionally for the treatments of skin elastic materials were screened in vitro for the matrix metalloproteinase (MMP)-1 inhibitor actions. The methylene chloride soluble fraction of methanol extract from the stems of S. japonica showed significant MMP-1 inhibition in primary old aged human skin fibroblasts caused by ultraviolet (UV) irradiation. Main triterpenoids were isolated by repeated column chromatography. Among them, the triterpenoid erythrodiol-3-acetate reduced the expression of MMP-1 and induced the expression of type-1 procollagen at the protein levels in a dose-dependent manner caused by UV irradiated cultured old aged human skin fibroblasts. Taken together, our results suggest that erythrodiol-3-acetate plays an important role in the skin aging process caused by UV irradiation.
