Abstract

Objective: To investigate the effect of paeoniflorin (Pae) on the expressions of Ras and Raf-1 in the synoviocytes of the rats with collagen-induced arthritis (CIA). Methods: After CIA was induced by type II collagen, rats were treated with oral Pae (25, 50 and 100 mg · kg-1). Synoviocytes were isolated and cultured with Pae at various concentrations. Ras and Raf-1 were detected by Western blot. Results: CIA induced paw swelling, increased arthritis index (AI) and decreased body weight. Pae diminished the paw swelling and AI at 25, 50 and 100 mg·kg-1, and increased the weight of CIA rats at 50 and 100 mg·kg-1. The expressions of Ras and Raf-1 in synoviocytes were increased in CIA rats, which reached the maximum at 20-28 d and declined from 42 d after induction of CIA. Pae at 50, 100 mg·kg-1 suppressed the expressions of Ras and Raf-1 in the synoviocytes in vivo. In cultured synoviocytes, Pae at 2. 5, 12. 5 and 62. 5 mg·L-1 also inhibited the expressions in vitro. Conclusion: The signals, Ras and Raf-1, are involved in synovitis of CIA rats. Pae can modulate the abnormal Ras-MAPK signal pathway via affecting the expression of Ras and Raf-1, which may be one of the mechanisms underlying its inhibition of synovitis.
