Effect of Saurauia vulcani Korth. Leaves on Superoxide Dismutase, HbA1c Levels and Insulin Expression in Hyperglycemic Rats
Keywords:SOD, HbA1c, Insulin, Sauarauia vulcani, Korth.
AIM: This study aimed to investigate Saurauia vulcani Korth. leaves. the activity of ethanol extract in hypoglycemic, superoxide dismutase (SOD), glycosylated haemoglobin (HbA1c) and detection of insulin expression by immunochemistry
METHODS: Saurauia vulcani Korth. Leaves powder was extracted by maceration method with ethanol 96%. The extract was administrated orally in doses of 100 mg/kg BW for 27 days. Diabetes was induced in rats by administered of Nicotinamide (NA) 230 mg/kg BW and streptozotocin (STZ) 65 mg/kg BW. Level of blood glucose, SOD, HbA1c were measured, and histopathology pancreas was observed to determine insulin expression with immunochemistry
RESULTS: Ethanol extract of Saurauia vulcani Korth. Leaves (EESL) shown a significantly (*p < 0.05) reduced in blood glucose levels at 104.25 Â± 2.562 mg/dL and HbA1c level at 32.53 Â± 0.188 ng/mL, but increased SOD level at 60.64 Â± 0.740 pg/mL and histopathology study shown secretion insulin as seen number of expressions of insulin / slice 31.00 Â± 0.315.
CONCLUSION: The result of this study showed EESL possess the hypoglycemic activity and increase the level of SOD but decrease the level of HbA1c in diabetic rat condition. The mechanism of the activity is suggested by stimulating the insulin secretion of pancreas Î²-cells which were damaged.
