    Loureirin B inhibits fibroblast proliferation and extracellular matrix deposition in hypertrophic scar via TGF-β/Smad pathway.[Pubmed: 25683490]
    The ethanolic extract of Resina Draconis (RDEE) has been reported beneficial to normal wound healing yielding more regularly arranged collagen fibres. Loureirin B, a major component in RDEE, has been supposed to be effective on the prevention and treatment of pathological scars.
    To investigate the therapeutic effects of Loureirin B on hypertrophic scar (HS), fibroblasts from human HS and normal skin (NS) were isolated. Results showed that Loureirin B dose-dependently downregulated both mRNA and protein levels of type I collagen (ColI), type III collagen (ColIII) and α-smooth muscle actin (α-SMA) in HS fibroblasts. Loureirin B also suppressed fibroblast proliferative activity and redistributed cell cycle, but did not affect cell apoptosis. In vivo rabbit ear scar model, Loureirin B significantly improved the arrangement and deposition of collagen fibres, decreased protein levels of ColI, ColIII and α-SMA and suppressed myofibroblast differentiation and scar proliferative activity. In NS fibroblasts, Loureirin B effectively inhibited TGF-β1-induced upregulation of ColI, ColIII and α-SMA levels, myofibroblast differentiation and the activation of Smad2 and Smad3. Loureirin B also affected mRNA levels of major MMPs and TIMPs in TGF-β1-stimulated fibroblasts.
    Taken together, this study demonstrates that Loureirin B could downregulate the expression of fibrosis-related molecules by regulating MMPs and TIMPs levels, inhibit scar fibroblast proliferation and suppress TGF-β1-induced fibrosis, during which TGF-β1/Smad2/3 pathway is likely involved. These findings suggest that Loureirin B is a potential therapeutic compound for HS treatment.

    Effects of dragon's blood resin and its component loureirin B on tetrodotoxin-sensitive voltage-gated sodium currents in rat dorsal root ganglion neurons.[Pubmed: 15493475]
    Using whole-cell patch clamp technique on the membrane of freshly isolated dorsal root ganglion (DRG) neurons, the effects of dragon's blood resin and its important component Loureirin B on tetrodotoxin-sensitive (TTX-S) voltage-gated sodium currents were observed.
    The results show that both blood resin and Loureirin B could suppress TTX-S voltage-gated sodium currents in a dose-dependent way. The peak current amplitudes and the steady-state activation and inactivation curves are also made to shift by 0.05% blood resin and 0.2 mmol/L Loureirin B.
    These results demonstrate that the effects of blood resin on TTX-S sodium current may contribute to Loureirin B in blood resin. Perhaps the analgesic effect of blood resin is caused partly by Loureirin B directly interfering with the nociceptive transmission of primary sensory neurons.

    Loureirin B, an essential component of Sanguis Draxonis, inhibits Kv1.3 channel and suppresses cytokine release from Jurkat T cells.[Pubmed: 25937895]
    Sanguis draxonis (SD), also known as "Dragon's Blood", is a traditional herb medicine that has been used to treat a variety of complications with unknown mechanisms. Recent studies show that SD displays immunosuppressive activities and improves symptoms of type I diabetes in animal models. However, the mechanisms underlying SD's immunosuppressive actions are not completely understood. The voltage-gated Kv1.3 channel plays a critical role in the pathogenesis of autoimmune diseases by regulating the functions of both T cells and B cells.
    Here we investigated the effect of SD and one of its active components Loureirin B (LrB) on Kv1.3. Both SD and LrB inhibited Kv1.3-mediated currents, produced a membrane depolarization, and reduced Ca(2+) influx in Jurkat T cells. In addition, application of LrB inhibited phytohemagglutinin (PHA)-induced IL-2 release from activated Jurkat T cells. Furthermore, point mutations in the selective filter region significantly reduced the inhibitory effect of LrB on Kv1.3.
    The results of these experiments provide evidence that LrB is a channel blocker of Kv1.3 by interacting with amino acid residues in its selective filter region. Direct inhibition of Kv1.3 in T cells by SD and LrB might be the cellular and molecular basis of SD-mediated immunosuppression.

    Effect of loureirin B on proliferation and extracellular matrix secretion of rat hepatic stellate cells in vitro.[Reference: WebLink]
    To investigate the effects of Loureirin B on proliferation and extracellular matrix secretion of rat hepatic stellate cells in vitro.
    HSC-T6 was cultured in 96-well plates for 24 hours.Then they were incubated with different concentration of Loureirin B for 48 hours.MTT was used for assaying proliferation of HSC.Inhibition rate was calculated.Hyaluronic acid,laminin and collagen type Ⅳ were measured by radioimmunoassay. Addition of Loureirin B into culture medium significantly inhibited HSC proliferation,and the higher concentration of the Loureirin B were,the stronger inhibition rate of the HSC had.It also inhibited hyaluronic acid,laminin and collagen type Ⅳ secretion in different degree.
    Loureirin B significantly inhibits HSC proliferation and extracellular matrix secretion.

    Protective Effects of Loureirin B on Dysfunction of Pacreatic Islet β Cell Induced by Palmitate.[Reference: WebLink]
    To study the protective effects and mechanism of Loureirin B on the dysfunctiion of pancreatic islet β cell induced by palmitic acid.
    NIT-1 cells were cultured in medium added palmitic acid,and treated with Loureirin B.Cell apoptosis ratio and content of reactive oxygen species(ROS) were detected by flow cytometry,the expressions of glucose tnansport receptor-2(GLUT2) was examined by semiquantitate reverse transcript PCR.Compared with palmitic acid treated group,survival rate of NIT-1 with Loureirin B(20,10 μmol·L- 1) was increased significantly(P0.05).Loureirin B(20,10,5 μmol·L- 1)scavenged excessive ROS and lowered its concentration significantly(P0.05).Loureirin B(20 μmol·L- 1) was increased the expressions of GLUT2(P0.05),and Loureirin B(20,10,5 μmol·L- 1) was effective on reducing apoptosis ratio induced by palmitic acid(P0.05).
    Loureirin B can increase the survival rate of NIT-1 cultured in the medium added palmitic acid,scavenge excessive ROS induced by palmitic acid,decrease the cell apoptosis ratio and elevate the expressions of GLUT2.This indicates Loureirin B may accomplish its islet cell protection effects by reducing ROS within cell and reversing glucose metabolism disorder rand other effects induced by forkhead box protein-1(FOXO1) activated by oxidative stress.
