Abstract

To observe the effect of active components group of Xiaoxuming decoction (XXMD) on brain mitochondria in cerebral ischemia/reperfusion rats during early recovery period, and study its protective mechanism for nerves in cerebral ischemia/reperfusion rats during early recovery period. Cerebral ischemia model of middle cerebral artery occlusion in rats was established by suture method, and reperfusion was conducted 2 h later. The degree of cerebral ischemia in rats was evaluated by using Zea-Longa's standard grading method, and the model rats were randomly divided into model group, Xiaoxuming decoction active components low, medium and high dose groups and positive drug Ginaton group, with sham operated rats as control group. Gradient centrifugation was used to extract the mitochondria from rat brain after 5 days of drug administration. Then the mitochondrial respiratory function was measured by Clark oxygen electrode method; mitochondrial membrane potential and the mitochondrial reactive oxygen species(ROS) level were detected by fluorescence probe methods; and the activity of mitochondrial succinodehydrogenase (SDH) and the content of ATP in the ischemic region of MCAO rats were measured by spectrophotometric method. The results showed that as compared with the model group, XXMD could significantly improve mitochondrial respiratory activity, increase the activity of SDH, reduce the level of ROS, increase mitochondrial membrane potential and obviously promote the synthesis of ATP in brain tissues. The results indicated that XXMD active components group could alleviate the energy metabolism disorders, protect brain mitochondrial damage and improve mitochondrial function in MCAO rats, which may be the mechanism of its neuroprotection activity.
