Saikosaponin A (SSa), a main constituent of the Chinese herb Bupleurum chinense DC, has antiepileptic activity,could inhibit NMDA receptor current and persistent sodium current, and inhibit epileptiform discharges induced by 4AP in a dose-dependent manner.[1]
Saikosaponin A has anti-inflammatory activity,can decrease PMA plus A23187-induced cysteine-aspartic acid protease (caspase)-1 activity, and the number of nasal rubs and serum TNF-α level in the ovalbumin-sensitized allergic rhinitis mouse model, and inhibit the IL-1β production.[2]
Saikosaponin A extends to alcohol self-administration the capacity to suppress morphine and cocaine self-administration in rats ,the GABA B receptor system is likely part of the neural substrate underlying the reducing effect of SSA on alcohol self-administration. [3]
Saikosaponin A as antioxidants improve antioxidant status. Supplementation with curcumin and/or saikosaponin A suppress inflammation and fibrogenesis in rats with CCl(4)-induced liver injury. However, the combination has no additive effects on anti-inflammation and antifibrosis.[4]
