Background: 1-Methyl-4-phenylpyridinium (MPP + ) causes a neuronal cell injury that is similar to the findings observed in Parkinson’s disease. Caffeoylquinic acid derivatives have demonstrated anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects. Nevertheless, the effect of 3,4,5-tricaffeoylquinic acid (3,4,5-triCQA) on the neuronal cell death due to exposure of parkinsonian toxin MPP + remains unclear.
Methods: Using differentiated PC12 cells, the preventive effect of 3,4,5-triCQA on the MPP + -induced cell death in relation to apoptotic process was examined.
Results: MPP + induced a decrease in Bid, Bcl-2 and survivin protein levels, increase in Bax levels, loss of the mitochondrial transmembrane potential, cytochrome c release, activation of caspases (-8, -9 and -3), cleavage of PARP-1, and an increase in the tumor suppressor p53 levels. 3,4,5-Tricaffeoylquinic acid attenuated the MPP + -induced changes in the apoptosis-related protein levels, formation of reactive oxygen species, depletion of GSH, nuclear damage and cell death. 3,4,5-Tricaffeoylquinic acid attenuated another parkinsonian neurotoxin rotenone-induced cell death.
Conclusions: 3,4,5-Tricaffeoylquinic acid may attenuate the MPP + -induced apoptosis in PC12 cells by suppressing the activation of the mitochondrial pathway and the caspase-8- and Bid-dependent pathways. The preventive effect seems to be ascribed to its inhibitory effect on the formation of reactive oxygen species and depletion of GSH.
