Molecular Formula:
Molecular Weight:
Berberine hydrochloride is an isoqinoline alkaloid and acts as a COX-2 inhibitor that exhibits chemopreventive activity against colon tumor formation. Study in humans and hamsters shows that berberine reduces total cholesterol, low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol, and triglycerides. It also inhibits c-Jun and suppresses inflammation and cancers.

1.Intact noradrenaline transporter is needed for the sympathetic fine-tuning of cytokine balance.
Selmeczy Z1, Szelényi J, Vizi ES. Eur J Pharmacol. 2003 May 23;469(1-3):175-81.
Earlier studies demonstrated that cytokine production is under the tonic control of noradrenaline. As the level and/or the duration of noradrenaline action is regulated by the noradrenaline transporter (NET), which is also a target of antidepressant treatment, we studied its role in the regulation of the cytokine response during inflammation. The endotoxin-evoked tumour necrosis factor-alpha (TNF-alpha) and interleukin-10 response was studied in genetically produced noradrenaline transporter-deficient (NET-KO) mice and by treatment with desipramine, a monoamine uptake-blocker antidepressant. NET-KO mice responded to endotoxin with significantly lower TNF-alpha and interleukin-10 production in comparison to their wild-type counterparts. Functional involvement of both alpha- and beta-adrenoceptors could be demonstrated in our model systems, using 7,8-methylenedioxy-14 alpha-hydroxy-alloberbane.HCl (CH-38083) and propranolol; however, the differences between the two phenotypes remained, suggesting a limited role of alpha-adrenoceptors in the observed changes.
2.Interaction of baicalin with berberine for glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 adipocytes and HepG2 hepatocytes.
Zhang CH1, Yu RY1, Liu YH1, Tu XY1, Tu J2, Wang YS3, Xu GL4. J Ethnopharmacol. 2014 Feb 3;151(2):864-72. doi: 10.1016/j.jep.2013.11.054. Epub 2013 Dec 18.
ETHNOPHARMACOLOGICAL RELEVANCE: Baicalin and berberine are important coexisting constituents of the combination of Radix Scutellariae and Rhizoma Coptidis, known as scutellaria-coptis herb couple (SC), which has heat clearing and detoxifying effects. The aims of the present study were to investigate the effects of the combination of baicalin+berberine on glucose uptake in 3T3-L1 adipocytes or HepG2 cells.

OBJECTIVE: To study alkaloid constituents of Diploclisia affinis.
4.Uptake and release of norepinephrine by serotonergic terminals in norepinephrine transporter knock-out mice: implications for the action of selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors.
Vizi ES1, Zsilla G, Caron MG, Kiss JP. J Neurosci. 2004 Sep 8;24(36):7888-94.
Our aim was to investigate the functional properties of the noradrenergic system in genetically modified mice lacking the norepinephrine transporter (NET). We measured the uptake and release of [(3)H]norepinephrine ([(3)H]NE) from hippocampal and cortical slices of NET(-/-) knock-out (KO) and NET(+/+) wild-type (WT) mice and investigated the presynaptic alpha2-adenoceptor-mediated modulation of NE release in vitro and in vivo. The [(3)H]NE uptake was reduced to 12.6% (hippocampus) and 33.5% (frontal cortex) of WT control in KO mice. The neuronal component of this residual uptake was decreased by 79.4 and 100%, respectively, when a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) citalopram was present during the loading. The more preserved neuronal release of [(3)H]NE (hippocampus, 28.1%; frontal cortex, 74.4%; compared with WT) almost completely disappeared in both regions (94.1 and 95.3% decrease compared with KO, respectively) in the presence of citalopram, suggesting that [(3)H]NE was taken up and released by serotonergic varicosities.
